As I know anchor text means a word or sentence having a link which opens in new window. For example see your post, below your post you have put signature. When you move mouse on your signature or click on your signature it will open one website in new window. That's call anchor text.

Deepakanox, Sometimes when you click on anchor text you are taken to a new window, sometimes you aren't - the content can appear in the same window.

Anchor text is the text that appears to a reader in a link to another web site. So in the first paragraph of this post, the phrase “Anchor Text Over Optimization Tool” is the anchor text for that link. Anchor text is important to search engines, as it is one factor they use in determining the relevance of a link in relation to search queries people might make for the page to which the link points. - See more at: http://www.virante.org/blog/2013/06/07/ ... mh8Vr.dpuf

Like AllanGardyne said, "Anchor text" is the words you click on in a link.

I think the more interesting aspect of anchor text is how it affects SEO. I found this article that talks about anchor text in the post Penguin 2.0 world. Interesting stuff. Hope this adds to your understanding.

anchor text is very important. consider what could happen if your "business A" has an anchor text not related to its business.

or with a different name or a wrong typed name.

always type carefully your anchor text :)
