HTML links, also known as hyperlinks, are used to create clickable links on a web page that can take the user to another webpage, a specific location on the same webpage, or to a specific location on a different webpage.

<a> tag, with the
href attribute used to specify the URL of the linked page. Here is an example of a link that takes the user to the Google homepage:

It’s important to use links correctly, as they make it easy for users to navigate between webpages and specific locations on webpages. It’s good practice to use descriptive link text that describes the linked content, and to test your links to ensure they are working correctly.
