Razor syntax:

@Html.ActionLink("About this Website", "About")

ASP syntax:

<%=Html.ActionLink("About this Website", "About")%>

The first parameter is the link text, and the second parameter is the name of the controller operation.

The above Html.ActionLink () helper, outputs the following HTML:

<a href="/Home/About">About this Website</a>
