I am a total novice and don't even know the proper terminology to explain what I am trying to do, but here it goes.
I am posting about a new piece of furniture that I bought and want readers to be able to click on the word "furniture" and be directed to the site where they can purchase it.
1) Is this hotlinking and if so, why is it not recommended ?
2) What is the best way to direct readers to the site were I bought this piece ?
3) What are the proper terms I should be using to describe this ?
The blog I need help with is not-going-out-like-that.com.
