<p>his is my second web page. I've added some meta
tags. Meta tags go in he head. Notice that they don't
show up on the web site. The keyword tag is where you
put the keywords that search engines use. The author
tag is where your name goes to say who created the

<p>Linking is the key to what makes websites work.
I'm using the simple web site from above but I'm
adding a link back to the essential HTML page. This is
a simple link because the the pages are on the same
website. Links that take you off the website to other
places on the web are more complicated.</p>

HTML Examples
This page has examples of html and the pages that it produces. On the left is the html and on
the right is the page that the html creates. These are real mini webpages. Since I have to have
a paragraph in each webpage anyway, I used each paragraph to explain the html that created
it. These are very simple web pages. I only provide them to give you a feel for what html is.
The complex html coding that it takes to produce a whole website is more than anyone who just
wants a website would want to get into. Fortunately, there is software that creates the html for
you. You just enter text, insert picture or videos, add music and even have a whole business
web site that can take orders and process credit cards. They also usually have a feature to
insert html for something the site maker doesn't cover.  I use Yahoo. An early version didn't
allow me to insert a music player to play my music files. I had to insert a bit of html to
accomplish this. The new version lets you insert all kinds of media. But as an affiliate marketer,
I still need to insert html for links that have my own special identifier.

The Hyperlink

Adding A Link

Linking is the key to what makes websites work. On this page, I'm adding a link back to the essential HTML page. This is a simple link because the the pages are on the same website. Links that take you off the website to other places on the web are a bit more complicated.You can see the html for the link right after the paragraph. It could have been put in the paragraph, as well. Study it till you understand where the page address goes and where the text for the link goes. Try the link out.

Essential HTML
A Simple Web Page

This is my first web page. It has the bare minimum. Note that the text in the head doesn't show up. The only text that shows on a website is the text between the body tags.

My Second Web Page

This is my second web page. I've added some more meta tags. Meta tags go in the head and don't show up on the web site. The keyword tag is where you put the keywords that search engines use. The author tag is where your name goes to say who created the site. The body is where you put things that will show up on the web site. There are lots of body tags. I've put in a few. There is h1 with alignment info for the main title and h2 for a smaller paragraph title. Then the paragraph tag p, for a paragraph. Then a hr tag to draw a line
