Links (or anchor tags) are really important in webdesign/development. With all default settings (Both in CSS and the webbrowser), a link does look pretty ugly: A blue, underlined text (and purple when you visited that website). I'm sure you've seen these colours before.
Luckily, CSS helps a lot. By changing the
:visited you can easily make your links a little bit more fancy. Janko has written an excellent post how you can improve your links even more.
Here's a simple little CSS technique that could be really useful in your next webdesign/webdevelopment process when adding links to a HTML page. Too many links on a page can be really confusing. Some links are just more important than others: They're the one that really need the desired attention. Other links (that are more common, like links to your Twitter page or RSS feed) should not be so "special".
That's exactly what we're going to do today: Hide those unimportant links and unhide (show) them while hovering its parent. We'll achieve this using CSS.
Achieving this technique isn't really hard and is more like a "small trick". That doesn't mean that it isn't useful: With this small piece of CSS, you can add a lot more rest to your website, since not so many links get loads of attention: Only when hovering the parent tag.
Internet Explorer 6 is a real game stopper when it comes to CSS. I'm also giving a neat little jQuery solution to make this nice technique cross-browser compatible.

One of the main things you want when you're creating a website, is that (new) people are able to find you. People don't enter random URL's in the address bar of their browser, so they won't find your website that way. You'll need to share your domain name (URL) on as many places as possible. It's one of the tips that I gave a while ago.
The most common places to begin sharing your domain, are online places like commenting on blogs, placing it on forums, sharing your site with social networking sites; You've probably heard them before. But this article is listing extraordinary places you can leave your domain name for free.
OK, I have to admit: Not many things in this world is actually free. You'll still need to do something (time / effort) to actually make it work. If you have any places where you can drop your domain name, feel free to share them in the comments! I'm pretty sure more people would want some innovative and creative ideas where they can share their website. Every visitor on your website is valuable, so every hit counts and letting people remember your name is critical to do so.
