How to use anchor links on your website?

Anchor links provide a better user experience for your visitors.

  • Good to place an anchor link in the footer to jump to the top of the website
  • Anchor links are good if you have a table of contents to jump to the right section.

Anchor links do not provide any additional SEO benefit compared to normal links. 

  • Do not substitute internal links with anchor links

Setting up anchor links is very easy

  1. Name an element an ID 
    • Eg: footer for the footer
  2. In the URL reference the ID with the #footer
