Best Practices for Accessible Links

It may seem like a simple matter to create a hyperlink on a website but often links are done with little to no thought about how the end user interprets them.  Many times links are created as if you were speaking to a person giving them directions to "click here" as though you are pointing to the screen.  

Users will understand links faster and easier if you take a couple of seconds to verify that your content is marked up correctly.
