How do I properly link to eHow content from my website?

We happily allow short excerpts of our content to be republished with proper attribution and a link back to eHow.com.

When you copy any text from eHow.com, an attribution link is automatically included when you paste the copy into your website. You must keep this attribution link. This link must be visible to the general public at a readable font size.

The best attribution option uses the eHow content title as the link copy. We find this approach imparts the most trust and credibility to readers of your website. You need to manually type the eHow content title and make the text a link. However, content management systems, like WordPress and Tumblr, make this easy to do.

Using this approach for an article titled “Paying Off Your Plastic” looks like this:

“It is important not to close an account once you’ve paid off the balance, however, because that unused credit will help improve your credit score.” (Read more on eHow.com: Paying Off Your Plastic)

It’s also acceptable to paste the raw attribution link directly into your website or use a link shortener to reduce a link’s length as seen here:

“It is important not to close an account once you’ve paid off the balance, however, because that unused credit will help to improve your credit score.” (Read more: http://bit.ly/1g4ekya)
