How to Use Anchor Text Links

Text links, or anchor text links, are links that are placed within the content of your website or blog. An anchor text link is a link that utilizes your keywords and/or is used to direct traffic to various pages within your website. These links are commonly found on blogs but are just as useful on traditional websites.

For example, if there was a sentence on this blog that looked like this: SEO like a PRO is a blog that teaches beginners the basics of search engine optimization and covers everything from keyword research to using meta tags, writing effective content, and more.

We would use it like this: SEO like a PRO is a blog that teaches beginners the basics of search engine optimization and covers everything from keyword research to using meta tags, writing effective content, and more.

In the example above, we’ve used two different anchor text links to direct visitors to relevant blog posts. This technique can be used to direct traffic throughout your website. When your keywords are included in the anchor text link, it also helps the search engines “read” your keywords and view those words as the ones most relevant to your site.
