Hyperlink - article at Wikipedia.
LINK. (I) (Of Scandinavian origin; cf. Swed. lank, Dan. laenke; cognate with "flank," and Ger. Gelenk, joint), one of the loops of which a chain is composed; used as a measure of length in surveying, being 1 o-th part of a "chain." In Gunter's chain, a "link"= 7.92 in.; the chain used by American engineers consists of 100 links of a foot each in length (for "link work" and "link motions" see MECHANICS: § Applied, and STEAM ENGINE). The term is also applied to anything used for connecting or binding together, metaphorically or absolutely. (2) (0. Eng. hlinc, possibly from the root which appears in "to lean"), a bank or ridge of rising ground; in Scots dialect, in the plural, applied to the ground bordering on the sea-shore, characterized by sand and coarse grass; hence a course for playing golf. (3) A torch made of pitch or tow formerly carried in the streets to light passengers, by men or boys called "linkboys" who plied for hire with them. Iron link-stands supporting a ring in which the link might be placed may still be seen at the doorways of old London houses. The word is of doubtful origin. It has been referred to a Med. Lat. lichinus, which occurs in the form linchinus (see Du Cange, Glossarium); this, according to a 15th-century glossary, meant a wick or match. It is an adaptation of Gr. Xi vos, lamp. Another suggestion connects it with a supposed derivation of "linstock," from "lint." The New English Dictionary thinks the likeliest suggestion is to identify the word with the "link" of a chain. The tow and pitch may have been manufactured in lengths, and then cut into sections or "links."

Johann Heinrich Friedrich Link (February 2, 1767 - January 1, 1850) was a German naturalist and botanist.
The fan favorite protagonist of the Zelda series. Although his name is officially Link, the player is given the option to rename him in every Zelda game. In most games, he is depicted either as a brave young boy around the age of 7, or a strong hero around the age of 18. His fate is tied with Princess Zelda, who appears in most (though not all) of his adventures, and the sacred Triforce. His main enemy is usually the evil Ganon. His main adventures take place in Hyrule, or similar kingdoms like Termina.
Link is a character that is "reincarnated" through out Hyrule's history -- there is no single Link. Each game stars a new link, unless it is a direct sequel, such as the Link in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Despite his appearance changing over the course of the games, there are a few key features that remain constant through almost every redesign: the trademark long green cap, the blonde hair, elvish ears and the famous Master Sword. In addition, Link is always left-handed (except when facing to the west in sprite based games, or in the Wii version of Twilight Princess). He is never given any dialogue or voice other than the standard yelps and grunts when attacking. This is to make it more of a role playing experience for the player. Link is usually in possession of the Triforce of Courage. Unlike most heroes, Link doesn't have any special super powers, instead, he goes all Batman-like (or more Green Arrow-like really, if you think about it) with an array of useful gadgets. His trademark items are the Hookshot, Bow, Bombs and Boomerang.
Link is the only character who has won GameFAQs' character battle tournament poll more than once. He also came out on top in their Tournament of Champions, beating out the popularity Final Fantasy VII's Sephiroth.
Link has been reincarnated many times in the Zelda timeline. These reincarnations are given titles to distinguish them from each other. The titles are listed in the order of release of the games that that version of Link first appeared in:

Today people also use the word link in a new way. The World Wide Web on the Internet is made of many different Web pages. The computer software that people use to make these pages (HTML) lets us go to other pages in a very fast and easy way.
The person who makes the web page can tell the computer to show a word or a picture on the Web page as a link. This means that when we click on the link with our computer mouse, the computer will show us the new page we want to see. Most links are blue, but they can be any color.
The color of the link will change to dark blue when clicked as the web browser recognises it in the browser's cache. Unless the cache is cleared, the link will always stay dark blue.
There are many ways in making a link on a web page. The process is different for different internet softwares.
In .htm and .html files, a link can be created using this code:
WikiSyntax like MediaWiki uses a simpler way of making links. To create a link to another page of the same website:
[[Page name|Link text]] or just [[Page name]].
To link to an external website:
[http://www.example.com Link text], [http://www.example.com], or just http://www.example.com.
BB code is used in forum softwares. To create a link:
[url]http://www.example.com[/url], or [url=http://www.example.com]Link text[/url]
