By creating an anchor on a specific part of a page, blog post, or knowledge base article, you can add a link to that section of your content. You can then insert anchor links within the same piece of content to let visitors navigate to that section without scrolling.

Please note: HubSpot recommends not using anchor links in emails because some email clients don't support them.
