What's the difference between a URL and a link?

Hello friends,

What's the difference between a URL and a link?

A URL is a special address that uniquely identifies a Web page on the Web.
A hyperlink is a certain kind of clickable text/graphic, which the Web browser generally responds by loading a new Web page.

Links are not the same as URLs, though sometimes people say "link" when they mean "URL." For example, "Type the link into your web browser." A link is a snippet of text that has been associated with a URL. If you click on that text you are brought to the page that the URL points to.

A Uniform Resource Locator (URL), colloquially termed a web address, is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it. A URL is a specific type of Uniform Resource Identifier, although many people use the two terms interchangeably. A link (short for hyperlink) is an HTML object that allows you to jump to a new location when you click or tap it. Links are found on almost every webpage and provide a simple means of navigating between pages on the web.

URLs are specific addresses while links are relative paths to URLs

URL stands for uniform resource locator and it is web address.Link by anchor text is created with the help of this URL
