In this paper we present a novel approach to automatic creation of anchor texts for hyper- links in a document pointing to similar doc- uments. Methods used in this approach rank parts of a document based on the similarity to a presumably related document. Ranks are then used to automatically construct the best anchor text for a link inside original document to the compared document. A number of dif- ferent methods from information retrieval and natural language processing are adapted for this task. Automatically constructed anchor texts are manually evaluated in terms of relat- edness to linked documents and compared to baseline consisting of originally inserted an- chor texts. Additionally we use crowdsourc- ing for evaluation of original anchors and au- tomatically constructed anchors. ...
