What is the correct use of Anchor text? Does it ever happen that it is over used? There is so much said about this, friends share your opinions here. I want to know how much anchor text is enough.

Anchor text (and its associated link) becomes excessive when it begins to distract from the Internet visitor's quality experience.

Another way to look at it: if you are placing anchor text (and links) for the sole purpose of stimulating a search engine then it's unnecessary and "spammy". Theoretically, if it is of no value to the visitor then it is of no value for the search engine.
