to make a word link to a page you need to do either of the following two things (depending on forum setup)

In HTML
Spoiler:

Code:
<a href="site-you-want-to-link-to">what-you-see</a>

so for example:
Code:
<a href="http://www.google.com">Search Google</a>

In BBcode
Spoiler:

Code:
[url=site-to-link-to]what-you-see[/url]

so for example:
Code:
[url=http://www.google.com]Search Google[/url]

both would end up looking something like this:
Search Google


if you are doing it in a forum post/topic etc, the most common way would be using the bbcode method

However if you are making a custom html page for example, you would use the html method.
