How Important Are Keywords In Buttons

1/ because anchor text is content as well.
2/ because it reinforces what the target page is about.
if you really mean buttons that are made from images, then not at all.

By the phrase "keywords in buttons" I can immediately think of three different things.
1. The keyword being part of the image filename. eg /images/some-keyword.jpg
2. The keyword being part of the image itself. eg a button that graphically and visibly says "Some Keyword"
3. The keyword being the alt-text of the linked image. eg <img src="/images/filename.jpg alt="Some Keyword">
Of those, #3 will have the most positive effect for you since the alt-text will be treated as anchor text for all intents.
#1 may have some limited positive value. Probably not much with the real SERPs, but it could have an effect with image searches and possibly help to reinforce other text on the page.
#2 would have no real effect since the text is part of the graphic.
Does that help?

Though that's open to abuse, I can name (with alt text) an image something completely irrelevant if I want, it wouldn't make sense for search engines to openly rely on my honesty to provide alt text that is not skewed to something I want to rank for I really don't see search engines being naive enough to believe we're all honest ... whereas I have no way of hiding what an actual text link says, I can't prove it either way though, it's just my personal preference based on gut instinct and second guessing.

Sure, you could. But how would that help anything?
