Now, having link text with keywords help in getting better ranking. Is there any use of having non-keyword links i.e. just url link (http://www.yoursite.com) to your website from another website? How significant is this??

If the site linking is reputable or an authority of some kind or even relevant to your own site in some way, then certainly the link can be useful even if no anchor text is used.

In addition, the SE's do count the anchor text in the URL, so if the URL has folders or a descriptive page name, that can boost your rankings. It's also one of the reasons so many SEOs used the URLs with hyphenated keyword names a few years ago - not so much for the URL value, but for the automatic inclusion of anchor text when the URL was pasted.
