How to Create Hyperlinks on Your WordPress Blog Video Transcript:
Okay so in this video I’m going to show you how to create some links or hyperlinks on your website blog on WordPress. Alright, let’s check it out. Okay so one of the best ways to keep people interacted on your website they’ll want to read more stuff is you can create links within your post or pages and what I mean by links is for example on this website, you can see right here there’s a different color, ‘Insanity Workout Schedule’ a different color from the rest of the text body. And also ‘Click Here’ is also blue and down here ‘Dig Deeper and Insanity Fit Test’. So, one of the greatest ways to keep people reading content on your website is too add links throughout your pages and post.
So for example, if I click this it’s going to lead me to another article about something else on my website and it’s very important because you want people to stay engaged on your website and you don’t want them to just read one article and just leave. You’ll want them to read a couple things and stay on they can really just understand what you’re trying to promote or teach them and that’s a really great way to do that is to create these links. So you’re probably wondering, “how do I do that?”. I’m going to show you. We’re going to go inside of our dashboard, and we’re going to go to an example post. It’s actually very easy to do this. So basically let’s say I wanted to highlight this ‘brand website logo’. And basically you highlight whatever text you want to link.
You’re going to see this little chain button. You’re going to click to insert. And you’re going to basically type in the address that you want that, when someone clicks on it where they go to. So this is an example so I’m just going to for the sake of time just click on the first link and then basically that’s the address and I’m just going to title it, ‘Brand Website” or something. And you have the ability to if you want them to click it, when it clicks it opens a brand new page or it just refreshes on to the current page they’re looking for. There’s different strategies to do this. For me if it’s something where I feel like I want them to learn about something but then come back to my current page that they’re reading I would click this button to say I want it to open in another a new page.
However if it’s a page that I want them to see and I don’t want them to go back to where they were looking at I don’t click this button. It’s really up to you on how you want to do it. You just click add link. And there you go. As you can see it’s highlighted in purple it’s underlined so now when I click ‘PREVIEW CHANGES’ that very link ‘brand website logo’ is now colored in blue and when they click on it it goes to a different page or website. So there you go. That’s how you create a link and it’s a great tool. A way to keep people engaged on your website and really help people navigate, so I hope you guys enjoyed this video I’ll see you guys on the next one.
