The key point is that I got a search-engine hit based purely on the text that linked to a page. It happened to be my own link, and the page happened to be fully indexed in its own right-- but both of those are tangential. The significant part is that it was a search that could have occurred in real life.
Actually it happens very often, with real life search..I must see it with around 10% of searches that I make..
