12  Anchor Text is the visible, clickable text in a hyperlink.

In the phrase “Faux wood shutters are good window coverings, but I actually prefer the Wood blinds.” two unique pieces of anchor text exist for two different links  Should be relevant to the page you're linking to, rather than generic text with at least one link per page  Anchor texts are one of the many signals search engines use to determine the topic of a web page, and can direct to an internal or external web page ◦ Bad Example – Click here! ◦ Good Example - anchor text, anchor text definition, learn about anchor text, honeycomb
