local seo inbound marketing link anchor text

Local SEO Marketing | Glossary | Anchor Text

In a prior article in this series focused on back links, I explained how links are the fundamental currency of Internet search and why back links are so important to your local SEO marketing efforts.

Every link originates from one or more words of text. That text is the text to which the link is “anchored” and hence it is referred to as anchor text.

In the first paragraph of this post, there is a link which originates from the words “back links”. Those words are the anchor text for that link.

 This article is part of a series about local SEO marketing. For access to all the articles in the series, click on the link in the prior sentence.

In the paragraph immediately preceding this one, there is a link that originates from the words “local SEO marketing”. Those words are the anchor text for that link.

Anchor text is more important than it may seem.

In the article on back links I explained how the more inbound links or back links the better and the more back links from high ranking websites the better still.

Well, the anchor text those back links originate from are taking into consideration by the search engines. If you have a lot of inbound links anchored to the text “local SEO marketing” your site will rank higher for the phrase “local SEO marketing”.

This is why anchor text is important to your search results.
