A hyperlink is a reference to a whole page or a specific element within a page on the World Wide Web. Hyperlinks can be followed by users by clicking or tapping (depending on device) the link’sĀ anchor text. Links are made up of the destination URL (or reference), anchor (the HTML) and the anchor text (the clickable text, usually blue and underlined).

Links are an important way for users to navigate the World Wide Web.
