I was reading more on the APA style but somehow I got stuck that how can I represent a link in an APA style.

Below are the links I have -

    This question appears to be off-topic because it seeks guidance as to how to interpret an arbitrary set of guidelines; it does not allow for other accepted conventions. – Edwin Ashworth Jul 21 '14 at 7:00

On the APA Style Blog, there is a reference to representing URLs in this recent article:

Audiovisual materials like videos, podcasts, movies, and television shows can make excellent sources for academic papers. To point the reader of a paper to a specific spot in an audiovisual source—such as when you cite a direct quotation—include a timestamp in the APA Style in-text citation, just as you would include a page number under analogous circumstances for a print source like a book or journal article. This post will show you how.

The article concludes with a recommendation on further references:

See Publication Manual§ 7.07 and the APA Style Guide to Electronic References for more example reference formats.

In summary, the procedure is essentially the same as with other citations. Include a citation at the point in the text and include the url in the references and/or bibliography.
