Link typing is a way to help user navigation in the hypertext space because it gives to the user an idea of the information that is "under" the link. Former link labelling methods have been focused on the relationship between the kind of information linked and not on the information contained in the linked nodes of the hypertext. In this paper a new point of view is suggested: following a link the user is moving in the hypertext space, so the link label has to highlight the direction of this movement in order to suggest to the user if s/he is moving towards the information needed or is going away from it. The proposed method can be applied to developed hypertext.
