HTML Links, Hyperlink – Examples, Tips

I get a lot of questions about hyperlinks. So, I decided to write an article to help people understand them a little better and hopefully use them to help their business.

What is a link?

A link is a code that points from one domain to another. Example: Google search results are all hyperlinks. When you click on the page result you want, you are transported from Google to the site associated with the result you clicked on.

A Basic Link

Here is an example of the most basic link. This can be used on just about any site. For instance: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube, WordPress blogs, and more. Although with this message, the link will most likely not be clickable. So basically, someone would have to highlight the link and copy it into a browser to visit your website. Sounds exhausting, huh?

Example

http://www.your-domain.com

Here is how it looks: http://www.your-domain.com

An HTML Link

If you want to make it easier for people to follow your link and hopefully get some Link Juice to your website. Then you will want to use a HTML link.
Although, not all websites allow visitor to use HTML links (caused by spammers).

Example

<a href="http://www.your-domain.com/">Link Text</a>

Here is how it looks: Link Text

An HTML Link with Alt Tags

Alt tags are used by web crawlers from search engines to give meaning to links. So you want to explain a link in an “alt tag”.

Example

<a href="http://www.your-domain.com/" alt="describe link">Link Text</a>

Here is how it looks: Link Text

An HTML Link with Blank Target

Blank target HTML links will open the link in a new window. You might use these links if you don’t want the visitor to leave the page they are currently on. So when they click the link it leaves the current window alone and opens another. An example of this would be a social media link on your website. You wouldn’t want the visitor to leave your website, but you want them to visit you Facebook page and then return.

Example

<a href="http://www.your-domain.com/" alt="describe link" target="_blank">Link Text</a>

Here is how it looks: Link Text

An HTML Link with an Image

Last, but certainly not least it an image HTML link. It works exactly like it sounds. An image that links to another webpage.

Example

<a href="http://www.your-domain.com/" alt="describe link"><img src="https://702pros.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/rocket2.png"/></a>

Here is how it looks:
