When you are creating a link, make sure the text in the link is meaningful. The link text should flow naturally within the document and should not inhibit readability.
Early web documents often used the text "Click Here" as the link text. For example:
Click here to view the sample document.
A better way to create the link is to use the text "sample document" as a link. For example:
You can view many examples on the sample document.
After you have finished creating a document that contains hypertext links, you should check the links to make sure they are valid links. It is very frustrating, when you are reading an HTML document, to be given an error message when you follow a link.
