How to manage links in posts and pages
Links are great! They make it easier for your website visitors to navigate through your site and to the pages your recommend outside your site.
Imagine someone mentions on their website a great resource they have somewhere else on their website, but there is no link to it on that page. It makes you have to look around for it yourself. Few people are willing to do that, and they will leave your site instead. Shame, right?
You want to make it as easy as possible for your website visitors, so create links to anything you mention that is elsewhere. If it’s outside of your site, make sure the link opens in a new tab. If it’s within your site, consider what is best. Like in the demo I have the link open to see a bigger version of the picture, but I want them to get back to the blog post once they close it, so I make sure it opens in a separate tab. If for example I link from my homepage to my About page I’m ok that they move away from my homepage altogether, as I assume they are finished with my homepage, and can also very easily find back to it from the About page.
In the next few weeks I’ll add a tutorial on how you can format your links to be more visible with different colours, sizes and font-styles, so sign up to stay updated.
