Certain words on a link can affect how users experience your interface.

Have you ever wanted your users to click a link but didn’t know how to get them to act? When some designers run into this problem, they’re tempted to use the words “click here” when labeling links.

The problem with using “click here” in a link is that it conceals what the user is clicking. The text around the link might explain what they’re clicking, but when the user reads the link itself they won’t have a clue.

Best practices never to use these words on a link. You should know how using these words on a link can affect how users experience your interface. Why your links should never say “click here”.
