Hello @Jino, its amazing to explore ways on how to do things in different way. Using Link text is also another way for finding the method in which you can use the text in the link to click on that link.

So basically you will need to inspect the element and find the text associated and then simply create a reference to it.

Here is how to do this:

As you got the link text then use the following command to click on that :

driver.findElement(By.linkText("Advertising")).click();

Hope this helps.
