Never say “Click Here”

Don't Use Click Here
Click to enlarge

When adding links on a website, one should always consider the content they are facing toward their viewers. A common mistake is to use the text “click here” as an incentive to get the viewer to hit a hyperlink, and there are several reasons why:

  • It doesn’t describe the link being clicked. Even if the surrounding text suggests the other side of the link, it deters readers from selecting it.
  • It’s terrible for screen readers and visually impaired users. If there are multiple “click here” links on a single page, they become indistinguishable from each other.
  • It kills the SEO of your website. Search engines use the link text to identify it’s individualism.
  • If the content of the page needs to be printed out, the sentence containing the link loses its meaning.
  • It looks like spam.
  • It’s outdated. The initial use of “click here” was to show that the text would redirect or open a file when the internet was young and the majority of people were not familiar with internet browsing.

 
Instead, use descriptive context to show your viewers what they are clicking on:

United Advantage NW Federal Credit Union - Website Redesign
Click to enlarge

United Advantage NW Federal Credit Union just got a brand new look!

At the start of the redesign, we sat down with Sarah McNeil to discuss their needs and wants for the new site. Their goal was to have a user-friendly, engaging and simple to navigate website. Additionally, they wanted the ability to edit main content easily throughout the site.

Once the brainstorming finished and the main requirements of the new site were laid out, our designer took off on the design, using their unique gradient logo as a jumping point for the new look.  United Advantage’s new site showcases large beautiful banners to promote their products and services, a service-carousel that displays their most popular, new and favorite products, a sticky navigation for desktop and mobile to make sure that visitors can always find their way, and engaging inner-page features.

Take a moment to check out their new look!
