Anchor Text SEO Performance
Anchor text used to tell the search engine that I have this keyword or word phrase that can be used as a query in the search engine. But actually, it is written with <a> Tag.
The anchor used to boost the SEO performance on your web page. As said in the question <a> Tag is used with href attribute.
You might be seen that some websites are using the anchor text # id feature that directly points you to the heading of that anchor. Never confuse yourself by taking the long text in the heading.
Moreover, take short # id that will be easy to remember while developing a web page.
Note: NoFollow is not recommended for a good quality web page that you want to access by the search engine the SERP and also by other websites that might be interested to give you a backlink.
