If you want the returning rows to be sorted, you can specify a sorting expression in the ORDER BY clause. The simplest sort expression is column name who's values will be sorted by. The following select statement returns rows sorted by the values in the "counts" column:

mysql> SELECT id, url, counts, DATE(created), tag 
   FROM fyi_links ORDER BY counts;
+-----+-------------------+--------+---------------+------+
| id  | url               | counts | DATE(created) | tag  |
+-----+-------------------+--------+---------------+------+
