Notices and Tips

Writing Links

Good links are descriptive, unique, and start with keywords.

Start with keywords
  • The best links start with the most important words. Use as many words as you need to accurately describe the page (or document) being referenced, while still being as concise as possible.
  • When writing links ask yourself, “What will the user get when they click this link?”
  • Don't force users to read the surrounding text to determine where the link leads.
  • Don’t use the URL as the link text.
  • Don’t repeat links. When users see the same link twice on the same page they assume that it goes to the same place.
  • Do not use "Click here" or "Read more" or other generic links. These links are uniformative and useless for both search and accessability (e.g., visitors using screen readers).
  • Avoid linking to different resources using the same link text.
More Link Tips
  • Don’t overwhelm users with too many choices. Only include links that are directly relevant to the page topic or user’s task.
  • Don’t clutter text with links. Avoid embedding multiple links in a paragraph. Where possible, move links to a list below the relevant paragraph or section.
