Structural patterns of the Internet and thus of hyperlinks and hyperlink networks have become a common research object in online communication studies. Put formally, a hyperlink is first of all a technical means by which two different web pages are being connected. Yet, within hyperlink network analysis, it has often been asked for their actual meaning. In the case of online networks between websites of NGOs, it could be shown that hyperlinks are reflecting ties between actors which also exist in the offline world and thus are based on common identities.
