When I first added links to my YouTube channel, it never occurred to me that I could make the
alt (hover over text) more expressive.
How to add links to YouTube Channel
We want to add a set of links to the YouTube Channel.
The icons are clickable links to our other web properties: blog, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
Edit your Channel.
Then choose “Customise Channel”
Then Choose “About”. And we can customise or add new Links.
We have five links so we want to use them well.
When I created my links I just added: Twitter, Instagram, etc.
Which is fine, and when I hover over the links I see the text that I added on the left as an alt hover text.
But I want to make the links more expressive, with more information, and more like a call to action.
- “Talotics.com Blog”
- “Instagram: @talotics”
- “Follow Talotics on Facebook”
- “Twitter: @talotics”
This provides more context when someone hovers over them.
