HTML Tip – making URLs in comments

I’ve noticed that some commenters have been leaving multiple links in their comments, and that is fine, except I am seeing that they are not links, which is not going to help you get back links.

I don’t know if something is happening with my comment script (please let me know if this is the case), or if people are just forgetting how to format the links.  If it is the latter, then here is how to format them so that you will have backlinks:

<a href=”http://www.thisismywebpage.com”>This is My Web Page</a>

Again, please let me know if you are putting them in this way but for some reason that is not how they are showing up once you click submit.  Otherwise, use the above formatting, replacing the url with your own of course, to ensure that your links will show up in the comments and will provide you with backlinks.

This concludes our HTML tip for the day. :geek:
