Instructions for adding a backlink in the footer of a simple website’s homepage.

If your website doesn't have a theme or a content management system like WordPress, and you're working with plain HTML and CSS files, you can manually edit the HTML file to add the link. Follow these steps:

1.     Access Your Website Files:

Locate and access the HTML file of your homepage. This is typically named index.html or home.html.

2.     Open the HTML File in a Text Editor:

Use a text editor such as Notepad (Windows), TextEdit (Mac), or any code editor like Visual Studio Code or Sublime Text.

3.     Find the Closing </body> Tag:

Scroll down to the end of the HTML file and find the closing </body> tag. This is where you'll add your link.

4.     Insert the Link Code:

Just above the </body> tag, insert the following HTML code:

<a href=""> Business Directory</a>

5.     Save the Changes:

Save the changes you made to the HTML file.

6.     Upload the Updated HTML File:

If your website is hosted on a server, upload the modified HTML file to the server, replacing the existing file.

7.     Check the Homepage:

Visit your website's homepage in a web browser to ensure that the backlink has been added to the footer.


To add a backlink in the footer of a WordPress website, you can follow these instructions:

  1. Log in to your WordPress admin panel.
  2. Navigate to the Appearance section and select "Theme Editor."
  3. In the Theme Editor, find and click on the "footer.php" file on the right-hand side. This file is typically located under the "Theme Files" section.
  4. Look for the closing </body> tag in the footer.php file. Place your cursor just before this tag.

       5. Copy and paste the following code, found below, just before the </body> tag,

<a href=""> Business Directory</a>

  1. Once you've added the code, click the "Update File" button to save your changes.

Please note: Modifying theme files directly can have unintended consequences, and it's recommended to have a backup of your website before making any changes. Additionally, some themes may have a "Footer" section in the WordPress Customizer where you can add code or widgets to the footer without editing theme files directly. If available, you might prefer using that option for easier management.
