Use unique and descriptive link labels

Check as complete

Terms like “click here” and “read more” don’t provide any context. Screen readers can give visitors an overview of all the links on a page.

When links are read out of context in a list, it's important they tell readers:

  1. What the link is
  2. Where it's taking them

Whenever adding or using a button, link or a label, make sure the copy tells readers what will happen on click.

Some examples include:

  • Read blog post
  • Register for event
  • Watch webinar
  • Apply to be a Webflow Expert

For an example of a screen reader announcing unhelpful links on a page, check out in this section about links on Webflow University’s video lesson on Advanced web typography.
