How to add clickable link in a blog post

How to add a clickable link or a hyperlink in a new blog post is one of those corresponded questions I received from my clients while responding to their various questions relating blogging in particular, as one sure strategy I personally deployed for gaining continuous blog content ideas.

A clickable link, otherwise known as a hyperlink in internet marketing term, is refers to a website chain or sausage of data that the reader can directly follow either by clicking, tapping, or hovering, which can add more value to both reader and the web content. 

Adding a clickable link in a blog post is a great way to inform your blog readers with new exciting business opportunity, diversify your blog content by adding more details, link to another blog, reference cited domain or authority, navigation content resourcefully, and guide the reader with related or similar content.

Clickable or hyper link contributed hugely to your blogging success by improving your content marketing professionalism, article resourcefulness to the readers, credibility, Search Engine Optimization, and helps as a ranking factor of your blog by the major search engines.

Google and other major search engines values and rank higher, a blog content with contextual hyperlinks that act as a reference, citation, or additional information to the information such blog content is trying to convey. 

Google sees and regarded such content with related link as more accurate, and thereby rank it higher than other related content with no reference, citation or external inbound link to supplements the information such blog containing.  

In web coding, programming languages or html, links are known and identified with <a> tag, which the “a” stands for anchor. It attribute href is a value that goes with it, which indicate to the browser that what come next is the hypertext reference – being a webpage. For example, <a href="">okongeorge</a>
If for instant such exemplified link is published in a blog, the word “okongeorge” becomes the clickable link that proceeded to website.

The hypertext is called the text with the hyperlink. The text that is linked is called anchor text or contextual link. The webpage containing the clickable or hyperlink is known as its source page. Remember, you can also use the same link <a> tag to link image by making image clickable in a blog post.
