How to Leave a Clickable Link in a Blog's Comment Section

Do you comment on blog posts and leave your blog's address under your name? Want to learn how to make it a clickable link that takes people directly to your blog? It's super simple and just requires a little HTML code.

Type your comments and add your name. On the next line you want to type <a href="URL of target site">anchor text</a>

The word "anchor text" is a description (the title of a blog, post, anything you like) and is what will be displayed on a browser. For example, the HTML for the hyperlink to my blog should be typed as:

<a href="http://www.blackkatsdesign.blogspot.com">Black Kats Design</a>

And will display Black Kats Design

If you want to display your URL and have it clickable just type

<a href="http://www.blackkatsdesign.blogspot.com">http://www.BlackKatsDesign.blogspot.com</a>

And it will display http://www.BlackKatsDesign.blogspot.com

Told you it was easy peasy! Leave me a comment and try it out.

Edited to add: Linking up to these great parties! Come join in the fun.

  26. I love the way this post created an index of blogs for me to browse! :-) Please check out The Earthling's Handbook.

    I'm not sure how commenting on blogs works for people who have their blogs with blogspot or other major providers. For me, when I click "Comment as:" the only option that will work is "Name/URL" so I put in my name and the URL of my blog there, so clicking on my name above my comment takes you to my blog.

    This little href trick also lets you link from a comment to a specific blog post. Just go to your blog, get that post on a page by itself, and copy the URL, like this: This delicious pasta dish is great for using up random vegetables!
