One way to link to a URL is
<input type=button onClick="location.href='index.html'" value='click here'>

As far as examples go you can try looking at the pages below as well as their associated pages

onclick uses Javascript which can be disabled in the user's browser and is sometimes hard to use...

HTML has a built in way to go to a different page. The Anchor tag <a> is a link.

<a href="http://google.com">this is link txt</a>

The above will show you "this is link txt", and when you click on it you will be taken to http://google.com
