The concept of a link is common in the domain of computing, more specifically within the Internet, a link is an element that is used in establishing a connection between two different resources, on these grounds, the use of a protocol network and a web link is developed to send and receive information.

Inbound Links/Backlinks

Backlinks—incoming hyperlinks from other websites to yours—are one of the top 10 most important Google ranking factors, but while SEO experts used to try to get as many backlinks as possible to boost search rank, that’s no longer the right approach, when it comes to backlinks, quality matters, here’s how to get great backlinks.

Outbound Links/External Link

Backlinks are the most important type of link, but outbound links—links from your website to other sites—can also improve your site’s search ranking, in list of Google’s ranking factors, Backlink output outbound link quality at #35.

Internal Links/Contextual Link

Internal links—links that go to other pages within the same website—help your site visitors find related content on your site, which keeps them on your site longer.

Internal links also help search engines understand your site architecture, see how the content on your site is related, and identify the most important pages on your site, all of which can boost your search rankings and enable your content to be more easily found by users, this document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is a compact representation of the, location and access method for a resource available via the Internet, when embedded within a base document, a URL in its absolute form may contain a great deal of information which is already known from the context of that base document\’s retrieval, including the scheme, network location, and parts of the url-path, in situations where the base URL is well-defined and known to the parser (human or machine), it is useful to be able to embed URL references which inherit that context rather than re-specifying it in every instance, a compact representation of the location of a resource relative to an absolute base URL a common use for Uniform Resource Locators is to embed them within a document (referred to as the \”base\” document) for the purpose of identifying other Internet-accessible resources, for example, in hypertext documents, URLs can be used as the identifiers for hypertext link destinations.

Absolute URLs contain a great deal of information which may already be known from the context of the base document\’s retrieval, including the scheme, network location, and parts of the URL path, in situations where the base URL is well-defined and known, it is useful to be able to embed a URL reference which inherits that contextrather than re-specifying it within each instance, relative URLs can also be used within data-entry dialogs to decrease the number ofcharacters necessary to describe a location, in addition, it is often the case that a group or \”tree\” of documents has been constructed to serve a common purpose; the vast majority of URLs in these documents point to locations within the tree rather than outside of it, similarly, documents located at a particular Internet site are much more likely to refer to other resources at that site than to resources at remote sites, relative addressing of URLs allows document trees to be partially independent of their location and access scheme, for instance, it is possible for a single set of hypertext documents to be simultaneously accessible and traversable via each of the \”file\”, \”http\”, and \”ftp\” schemes if the documents refer to each other using relative URLs, furthermore, document trees can be moved, as a whole, without changing any of the embedded URLs, experience within the World-Wide Web has demonstrated that the ability to perform relative referencing is necessary for the long-term usability of embedded URLs.
