Anchor Link

An anchor link will link you to a specific place on a page. Anchor links can be helpful when you want to bring a website visitor to a specific spot on a page.

The two parts of an anchor link are the  anchor and the link. When the link is clicked, it will bring your visitors to the place in the page where the anchor exists.
