Anchor text is significant for SEO because it's one of the main factors that search engines consider when determining a page's ranking. In general, you want to use anchor text that accurately reflects the page's content. For example, if your page is about dogs, you would want to use anchor text such as "dog breeds" rather than "click here."

In addition to using accurate anchor text, you also want to make sure that your anchor texts are used in a way that doesn't appear spammy. For example, don't repeatedly use the same anchor text for all of your links or use unrelated keywords as anchor text. Otherwise, you may find yourself penalized by Google.

Anchor texts are important for SEO because they help web crawlers understand the context and content of a webpage. When a web crawler sees an anchor text, they can determine what the page is about and whether it is relevant to the user's search query. Additionally, anchor texts can help users find your website through organic search results. By including keywords in your anchor texts, you can increase your chances of ranking higher in SERPs. However, you should avoid over-optimizing your anchor text as this could result in penalties from Google.

Simply put, anchor text provides context to both users and search engines. The link label indicates what a user will see on the linked page if she decides to click on it. On the other hand, search engines use the anchor text to index and rank web pages.

Anchor texts are a significant part of SEO as through anchor text a web crawler and user get to know about the content of the website. It helps to understand the context of the content if you have a digital marketing blog or site your anchor text would be like “ best digital marketing services”, “click here to know more about the digital services” etc.
For SEO, google or any other search engine crawls the website or its content regularly. As anchor text is one of the ranking factors of SEO it tells the user where they can receive more information about one particular thing. So the user spends more time on your website and the website’s rank increased effectively.
