Source: How to write good hyperlinks — Write Like a Human — Medium
Thanks to Amy Thibodeau for posting this on Facebook in the Content Strategists group.
This is a short but sweet article to help improve how to write hyperlinks in a more user-friendly manner. This is something I work on for myself, but it’s also something I try to teach content providers when I edit and post content. Much of the world is fairly digitally literate now, that if they see a hyperlink, they know it’s going to take them somewhere else. The guidance here is easy to follow, and can help provide some great perspective on how to make hyperlinks easier to use for your users.
What do you think? Are you still part of the “click here” movement? (I know I’ve been working on breaking that habit–I don’t like it!) Include your comments below.
