Link affordance

Link affordance is a visual property that communicates to a user clickability of an element. Depending on a link type, i.e. text link, image link, a button or an area, affordance can be expressed in many different ways. However, it is important to make sure the user has enough visual clues to understand that this is something that can be clicked when they see it.
