How to Add a Link in WordPress


It’s no news that most websites carry significant amounts of textual content. One of the basics when posting any type of textual content is being able to link certain parts of it. This will not only provide your audience with more dynamic website experience but bring them better navigation as well. So, if you want to benefit your website, don’t forget to create anchor links for your textual content. Also, you can add email and phone number links to your page. By doing this your visitors will be able to reach out with just a click to the link. Now, let’s see how you can easily add a link in WordPress with a few simple steps.
