A quick answer to histogram appearance for best light exposure would be that the histogram should look like a horizontally even mountain range, neither higher on the right (too light) nor higher on the left (too dark). Ofcourse that's very simplified.

If you want a more in depth explanation, check the link as it provides some good info:
