Links are the most important elements of a website or a webpage. The website can not be properly navigated without adding links. HTML links are those elements which take a visitor from one page to another. The simple syntax of using links inside webpages is as follow:
<a href=”http://www.google.com”>Go to Google</a>
In simple example above the link: http://www.google.com is the link and the Go to Google
is the anchor text for that link, so when a person clicks the text [Go to Google]
he/she will be redirected to Google.com. The above one is the simplest example of HTML links. However, you can use the full attributes of each HTML tag
and for the anchor tag or link tag the following attributes are used:
<a href=”http://www.facebook.com” title=’Facebook’ target=’blank’> Join Facebook </a>
Actually the <a></a> tag is basically called the anchor tag which holds a link inside. The title is used for the page title which is linked inside the <a> tag. And the target is used for browser window’s behavior. You can use the target as: blank or parent. The blank attribute will open the link in a new browsing window.
How to use images inside links?
You can also use images inside links, or simply images can be made as links. Below example is for an image inside <a>tag:
<a href=”http://www.mysite.com” target=’blank’><img src=’blah-blah-blah.jpg’></a>
The example above has an image inside the anchor tag, so when visitor clicks the image, he/she will be redirected to another page.
