    Both are important from seo point of view. Linking to one either branded link or anchor link can make your keyword overally optimized. There should be a proper balance between keywords optimize. It is need of understanding the small difference between keyword stuffing and keyword optimizing.
    Anchor links are the links made on using the actual keyword you are targetting.It is advised to go for variations both for branded as well as anchor keywords.

    Anchor text = text that is the actual hyperlink as I understand it. This is always going to be the most important. The link that bears the text of the keyword or keyword phrase in question will always be given a higher weighting. Having said that, you should also have branded anchor text. Its a good idea to have a strong, the strongest, relevance on your branded terms....you don't want a competitor having them.

    I'm not yet convinced on what the perfect storm is for backlinks, but I do know that relevant backlinks from relevant domains that have high authority get you better ranking.
