Glossary » external link

external link

a link that goes from a website to another website, at a different address. Such links can be disorienting because the primary navigation structure no longer appears once someone is on a new site. The reliability of the external site can’t be guaranteed. In addition, some sites feel that the lack of editorial control over external sites requires that a warning be provided to users.
