Generally speaking, you need a mix of both types of links to your website. That's just more natural.

But for SEO purposes, anchor text links are preferred. If you do use image links, then make sure that you do use the image alt attributes so that keywords are associated with those images.

SEO since 1996, I've been doing internet marketing. I have the experience as an SEO expert, as well.

Are you talking about links back to your site, or internal links on your site?

Text or image, two or more important, don't miss anything when creating backlinks, or whatever, both are important

When it comes to backlinks, both the text and image links matters. However, Text backlinks are much more effective when compared to image links.

Both is important for me. But need to do in a finest way. No span technique or duplicate content to use. Always fresh content needed and spam free pages.

Default Text or image

Better we should go for text link because the Google will not consider the text present in image so Text link is good.

In my point of view text link is potential way in compare of image links, but if you are using both then It is good.

As many have mentioned in the long term it is not a an either or answer. The answer is both should be used as both provide a different item for Google to find data and rank the site based on content. If you are new and trying to determine where your time should be spent initially, i would say anchor text would be my first go to. You can always go back and update the other.
