Are you adding these to a /catalog/includes/languages/english/links.php file, or directly to a catalog/links.php page (or some derivative thereof) ?


If adding to the /english file, try:


<a href="http://www.siteiwant.com">link site</a>


You might also want to have the link open in a new browser window, in which case it should be:


<a href="http://www.siteiwant.com" target="_blank">link site</a>
