Proper Use of Links


Adding links to our posts and pages allows us to associate what we write with content in the outside world. There is a proper way to present links, so that their purpose is clear to the people visiting our sites.
More information about properly formatting links content can be found here.

Link Text

Linked text should describe the content being linked to. It is not appropriate for the link text to be something vague, like “click here” or “link to page”.

Semantically Group Links

We often post groups of links, providing a number of references or similar resources. The way that you group these links can impact whether and how a visitor perceives the links. It is appropriate to group links in a bulleted or numbered list.

In WordPress, just click the icons for Unordered List or Ordered list, in the text editor, to begin a list.
