How to Add Hyperlinks to Word - oh so easy and so useful!
I have been messing around with Word now that I am into writing and publishing my own ebooks for sale. I use Word to create my content and then I convert it into a pdf document.
One thing that I struggled with was how to make a clickable content page and I recently figured that out and I am oh so chuffed. I can see how it will also be brilliant to help my readers move around my content easily in other ways too. For example if I use a technical term in my writing I won’t always want to write an explanation right there, but instead make it clickable either to an external Wiki link or perhaps to dictionary.com or I could even write an explanation at the end of my ebook and link internally to that.
So how to do it is simple, you just highlight the text you want to link and then right click on the text and click on Hyperlink. You can then choose to link externally to a website and add the url in the bottom of that window.
Or alternatively you can link internally by choosing link within this document, there you can choose to link to headings that you have added, so be sure to use heading within your Word document.
Alternatively you can create bookmarks for certain sections by highlighting them, then you click on “insert” and bookmark, name it and bookmark it. Then you can also link internally but instead of choosing one of the headings you can find your bookmarked text.
I hope you found this helpful, yes it might be some very basic stuff for a lot of you, but for me it is newly learned and oh so helpful.
One more thing… linking externally from your ebook means you can also add affiliate links… think about it, what an awesome way to generate some affiliates! Offer a free ebook with great quality information and drop a few affiliate links in!
