Creating accessible hyperlinks
Give hyperlinks meaningful names
- Don't use 'Click here'
- Don't use the address that is linked to as the hyperlink text, for instance www.kirklees.gov.uk
- Give your links the same name as the page or page section that they link to
- For instance: If you link to a page called 'Apprenticeships' then write your hyperlink as Apprenticeships
Don't link to the same location using two different link terms
For instance, don't link to the Apprenticeships page once using the link text 'Apprenticeships' and elsewhere on the same page use the link text 'Find apprenticeships'.
Don't link to different locations using the same link text
For instance, don't link to one page using link text 'Advice' and elsewhere on the same page use the same link text 'Advice' to point to a completely different page.
