Anchor

Definition - What does Anchor mean?

An anchor is an HTML tag that identifies a link to text or an image on the same page or to another specific location. An anchor can be used in two ways:

  • By using the “href” attribute to create a link to another page
  • By using the "name" attribute to create a bookmark within a page

The hyperlink text on which the user clicks is known as the anchor text. Anchor text is also known as link text or a link label.

Techopedia explains Anchor

An anchor tag is usually seen in a Web page’s HTML. On a website, it appears as a hyperlink to another page or another location on the same page. The “href” attribute is the most important attribute of the element and points to the link’s destination.
