This guide explains how to share links to your website which allow other people to go directly to your home page or to any other specific page or even part of a page
If you'd like someone to visit your website, you would probably send them a link to its 'www' address, for example www.oxfordtherapy.net. Did you know you can also send links which direct people to a specific page or even to a specific section of a page. Here's how.
Each page of your website has a number, starting with 1 and there is a simple method for directing people to any individual page, by adding a /page suffix. For example:
www.oxfordtherapy.net/page2 takes your visitor to page 2 (currently called Psychotherapy and Counselling)
www.oxfordtherapy.net/page6 takes your visitor to page 6 (currently the contact page)
If you recall seeing website addresses with a # in them, this is the standard syntax to say that the link goes directly to a particular place on a web page and the text after the # determines where it is.
To use this method you need to insert some code into your website which acts as a marker. We'll use our website demo.phdinteractive.com to demonstrate. Our second page on this site is called About Me and if you scroll down you'll find a section which lists Qualifications. Now we can make a link which will take people straight to that qualifications section.
That is all there is to it. You can have as many of these markers on a page as you like.
