Hi, I'd like to give a hypothetical situation. Say I have a website called, 'All about fish'. The first page of the website has the heading: 'Big Fish'.

I tweet, on twitter, 'fish in red tins is better than fish in blue tins' and want to link red tins to a particular article on 'Big Fish' in my website. How do I do that?
I have searched but I get confused. I know a little html, enough to put together a website but no more than that.
I guess what I'm saying is; please explain it to me like I don't know much, because I don't. But I'm slowly learning.
Thank you.

    <a href="yourdomain.com/thearticle">red tins</a>

    I think thats what you are asking.

    Edit: I am unsure if this is possible in twitter, sorry.

    I would say that if you are using a Word Press platform that it is easy, as you have a link and an unlink. But if you have a site you built, then I have no idea what platform you are using.

    As for links on twitter, you only have the main link which goes back to your site. For there you can link any text, image etc. to what every page you want on the site.

    You may want to try youtube, and see if you can find a video on how to do what you are trying.

    I hope that this helps.

    Thank you!!! I didn't specifically mean twitter. I wasn't very clear. I guess what I'm asking is, how do I make it so that someone, viewing a different site, can click and magically appear at a particular point, on a particular page, on my website. Rather than just arrive at the top of a page. Is that better??

    Thank you for your patience.

    I think you can need anchor text <a href="yourwebsite.com">Your keywords</a> or <a href="yourwebsite.com/">yourwebsite.com</a> it is clickable going to your site.

    how do I make it so that someone, viewing a different site, can click and magically appear at a particular point, on a particular page, on my website.
    To do this you need to use anchors. You insert the anchor at a certain point in the page, say a certain heading, etc. And then you link to that anchor.

    Say your website was www. helpmefindmyself .com - To create an anchor on a page you need to surround it with an anchor tag. Say you want someone to appear on a FAQ page at a certain heading, lets say the heading is "How can I make Money". So you would suround that heading like this <a name="anchorname">How can I Make Money</a>, now you have an anchor point on your page.

    To link to the anchor point you just affix #anchorname to the url. ie: <a href="www.helpmefindmyself.com/faq.html#anchorname">Click Here</a>.

    Replace anchorname in both tags with what you please.

    I hope that helps, if you still don't understand just google "anchor points html" and you should be able to figure it out.

      Thank you mcflause. This is clear I concise and I can do this. Thank you so much. I have been searching for this for a while but didn't really know what I was searching for, which makes it hard. You're super. That must be true because I'm a Grandmother and We know these things.

    You can not create anchor text within Twitter. That goes for most social media sites. I find that MySpace you can create anchor links within your blogs within your MS page. And the best thing about this is that they all get marked as link juice. Good quality link juice if you know what I mean.
