    When reading hubs, do you click on the link words to see what is linked to the word?

    Only sometimes if I want to know more about that subject.  Sometimes, what I'm actually interested in isn't answered by the Hub, but the linked words are closer to what I want.  That is when I click.  Actually, that makes me realize that when I write Hubs, I need to put associated ideas in links.

    If the word that has been highlighted relates to the topic at the  point within the paragraph whereby more information is required then yes I would.

    Sometimes I do. In reality, it is probably not a good idea. No telling what will be waiting for you. When you boil it down, I guess we are trusting, and are willing to take a calculated risk to satisfy our curiosity.

    Only if I'm engaged by the article; if I want to learn more about what the article is about, then I'll click on the links. If not, then I won't; it's as simple as that.

    Nope, if I'm curious I just hover my mouse over the link and read the URL at the bottom left corner of the page.

    If the topic is interesting and I want to know more about it, I follow the same method Faceless39 here mentioned. I hover the mouse over the linked word and see where it is hyperlinked. If it is something interesting and I have time to read, I click.
