Get the most out your links with some simple steps.
When calling the user to action, use brief but meaningful link text that:
- provides some information when read out of context
- explains what the link offers
- doesn’t talk about mechanics
- is not a verb phrase
Avoid using the following sentence on your page:-
Visit the Scoosh website click here
It is much better use:-
Expanding on this theme you would write:-
Avoid using verbs and words that are not necessary in the link.
A great example of a website that does this well is wikipedia, a site that by definition has to have thousands of links, but it is done in a clear way that the site can be both read and navigated easily.
