What is linking?
Linking means one website connecting to another website through a ‘hypertext’ link: a specially coded word or graphic that when clicked, takes a site visitor to another web page.
A link can take visitors to another page within the same website (an ‘internal link’), or to another website altogether (an ‘external link’).
If you provide a connection to our site by either a coded word or image, you have "linked" to our site.
