What are the permitted websites I can use when citing a source in my article?
It's not possible to give you a list.
If you are referencing a study, then make sure to link to the exact site/page.
When referring to a more general website, then make sure it is an authoritative one. It's usually not worth sending people off to Wikipedia.
If your article is an academic one, list your references and resources at the end. With a less academic piece, you can add an in-text link within the article itself.
Hope that helps.
If you are using a website for your research, it probably has good content and is therefore not a spammy website. This means that the link is okay and you can include it at the end of the article or directly at the point you use it
Thank you because I do tend to use websites or scholarly journals when I wrote my research papers in graduate school, so I guess this is the sort of the same thing, but I now know I can use references because at first I thought Hubpages would not allow you to cite outside references. Thank you for the tips.

The latest article I submitted didn't pass QAP because it contained "spammy elements." I'm really struggling with what that is because the only links in my articles are the sources I used. Do they want me to not cite my sources? I'm just so confused and it's really discouraging that the...
