How to Link

I have a question for everybody. How should I link to people’s site from my site? should I (a) link to them use their site’s name, or (b) link to them using their real name. Personally I’m leaning towards their real name, but I’d like to know what you all think.

The opinions expressed in comments are entirely the responsibility of the various contributors. While I will do everything within reason to ensure that they are not defamatory, I accept no liability for them or the content of links included in them.


Same question I have. Your site is an easy decision. In the end though, I don’t care if I’m linked to as “Bozo” so long as I’m linked to. hahahah


For most people, including me, their blog identity is their blog name and they would prefer to publicise that instead. Using a person’s name for something as impersonal as linking seems a bit much. Publicise the source not the author I say as many people stay cloaked within their blog.


Dhruba Bandopadhyay, very good point, I can’t argue against that. And after looking at more links I think I’m going to stick with site name instead of peoples names.


Hmm… My real name, nope don’t think I’d like that too much.
