The four most important reason that links do not work are:
1.The link is not correctly spelled. For example, I misspelled MY NAME in a link earlier today. Silas caught it and did not believe me when I said it was intentional. And he was right. I just made a mistake!
2. Nothing is placed between the two parts of an a tag. I will demonstrate this to you.
Apple's Web Site which you may find interesting.
3. You forgot to include http:// in the address. It must be included.
4, Sometimes Google doesn't like a / after the address. Try removing it.
