Use anchor links to help your visitors navigate to a specific section of your content without scrolling.

Please note: it's strongly recommended not to use anchor links in emails because anchor tags don't work in all email clients. Anchor links also won't work in the email preview in HubSpot.

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to landing pages, website pages, blog or knowledge base.
  • Hover over the page, blog post or knowledge base article where you want to add an anchor, then click Edit.
  • Click the rich text module to place your cursor in the location where you want to insert the anchor. 
  • In the rich text toolbar, click the Insert dropdown menu, then select Anchor.

  • Give the anchor a name. Anchor names must begin with a letter and may only contain letters, numbers, hyphens, underscores, colons and periods. If you want to use more than one word for your anchor, separate each word with dashes (-). Then, click Insert.

  • The anchor will appear as a small grey square. You can drag and drop the anchor divider to move it into a different position on the page.
  • Next, create the link that sends the visitor to the section of the page where the anchor was inserted.
  • Highlight the text you want to hyperlink in the content body

  • In the rich text toolbar, click the link iconlinkd.
    • If the anchor you're linking to is on the same page as your link, click the Link to dropdown menu and select Anchor on this page. Then click the Anchor dropdown menu and select the name of the anchor
    • If the anchor you are linking to is on a different page as the link, click the Link to dropdown menu and select URL. Enter the full URL of the page followed by the hashtag symbol # followed by the name of the anchor. 
  • Click Insert.anchor-on-this-page-popover
  • If a visitor clicks this anchor link, they'll be redirected to the section of the page or blog post where the anchor was placed.
