Note, however, you should follow some guidelines when linking.

- Keep your links simple. Fair use allows small quotes, and as long as you keep things short you should be fine. If you start including complex graphics or long passages of text then you are putting yourself at risk as well as possibly plagiarizing.

- Get permission where possible or feasible. This can work to your advantage, as you can do a "link exchange" which has many uses (more links to your site means a higher popularity by search engines).

- Include a section of your own which explains to your visitors that you have no control over external links You think they might be of interest, but you don't have any responsibility for their content.

- Again, only link to HTML and text style pages. Do not link to multimedia files (images, sounds and videos).

- Also, remember to not link to CGI routines (and other executable objects) without permission.

When you are designing your own site, it's a great idea to be sure that you understand that people will be bookmarking and linking to any and every page that you've got. Search engines also are notorious for sending visitors willy-nilly to whatever page they believe fits a search topic. Thus, your navigation and overall design must allow visitors to move around freely on your site regardless of which page they land upon.

The bottom line is simple. People can link to any page they want to within your site (just as they can bookmark anything at will). Those webmasters who moan about this practice or make attempts to stop it are wasting their time and have little understanding of howrepparttar internet really works. Those who plan their website aroundrepparttar 119395 concept will create a better experience for their visitors, gain more traffic and thus better achieve their goals.
