What Is a Hyperlink?

August 30, 2022

A hyperlink (or link) is an HTML document element that links to a part of the document or a different HTML document. Clicking the link navigates to the target destination.

Hyperlinks on webpages appear as underlined links with a blue (not visited), purple (visited), or custom color. Additionally, renamed links are known as anchor text and are a valuable SEO feature.
