Icon-Based Vs. Text-Based Linking?

The search engines won't care as long as their algorithms deduce that the links are visible to and easily interpreted by the people who visit your Website.

Hi,

 

I am wondering is it better to use icon-based links rather than text-based ones for SEO?

For example have the link to your homepage display as a house icon rather than a hyperlink with the anchor text "Home".

This is assuming the page title element and alt attributes of the icons used are properly SEO'd.

 

As I was thinking using icons would be more language agnostic and maybe is a good signal for the search engine?
