website links

    TINY TIP: All links should open a page or take a reader to a particular location.


How many times have you clicked on a link only to land on a page that said, "The Page Cannot be Found." Then what?

You usually click around here and there, trying to find your way home. There may be times when you just have to close the page and start all over.

When websites are updated and pages need to be removed to keep current with new services or products, redirect links are critical. When the URL (website page name) changes, or a page is deleted, it is important to automatically redirect the viewer to the proper page, and good coding can do that. If the error page does open, it should contain a link or directions that take the reader to the correct web page or back to your website.

Tiny Tip Summary

  • Best practice for URLs that change in a website: Provide a link or automatically redirect the viewer to the correct page or back to your website.
