Course: Writing useful hyperlinks


You know you shouldn't write click here... but what should you write instead? What should you link to? And where should you place links on a web page (or in any document)?

Whatever you write at work probably includes hyperlinks. Discover how to provide genuinely useful links, and how to avoid infuriating people by writing vague or misleading link-text.

Course contents

  1. How hyperlinks power the internet, influencing accessibility, usability and search results. Good reasons and bad reasons for inserting links.
  2. The best places for hyperlinks. Links in the wrong places can confuse your readers and stop them reading.
  3. How to write great link-text: ideal content, words and length. How to show people exactly what they'll find when they click.
  4. How to avoid giving nasty surprises when you link to unexpected places or files.
