I want to write a HubPages article on the benefits of vitamin D. In order to document my sources, does HubPages prefer a link like this ** to the source, or can I high a word or phrase with a connecting link to the credible source?
I can’t say what HubPages prefers, but my health articles have been accepted and switched to network sites with a list of references at the end. I sometimes say “According to (source),” in the article and then state the relevant fact. Another strategy that I use is to include a quote from a reference source. I don’t use footnotes or red links in the article because I think they impede reading (though I do include links in the reference section at the end). That's just my opinion, though. Some people may disagree.
Based on my own experience, medical articles by non-medical writers or from non-medical-specialty sites never get traffic; not even if the article is written by a patient. Google has actually admitted their bias in this regard.
