"Edwin De Leon" <a href= http://www.restaurantfundingusa.com/art ... d-know-35/">To Learn What 1 Secret The Exerts Do Not Want You To Know About Merchant Cash Advances</a>

I created a link so that those who view my article can link to my site, by clicking on it, the question is the html set up correctly and will the reader see that long url address or only this:

To Learn What 1 Secret The Exerts Do Not Want You To Know About Merchant Cash Advances

I do not know when I submit my articles how things will appear when I set up a hyper link in the article resource box, not sure if doing correctly

Edwin,

In order for them to see the title and not the long URL, here's the format:

After the code you've included, type in the name of the article the way you want it to appear, then </a>

The choice is yours, but I would consider changing the title slightly to:
"The 1 Secret _____ Experts Do Not Want You To Know About Merchant Cash Advances"

In the blank, consider adding a word that describes these experts (check your spelling - *grin*). Industry experts, credit experts, credit card companies (leaving out experts). As soon as I read it, I wondered who these experts were. You may answer that in the article, but it will give you more credibility if we know WHAT experts. Otherwise it could be an empty claim.

Hope this helps.

Not quite. You need a " (quote mark) before http where you currently have a space.

I'm surprised that the rest of it is showing as a link. Maybe it's because of that missing quote mark.

If you notice, the word THE at the beginning of the title is included as part of the link IN THIS POST. But if you put in that quote mark and copy the whole thing into a text file to remove all formatting, it should be fine.

Let me know if it works when you test it live. Glad to help.

:D Edwinn,

Have had a love affair with dragons since reading the Hobbit
back when I was a kid. ( am 56 now) 6 years ago, I had a dragon
tatoo done on my entire left shoulder blade. Took over 3 hours to do
( with color).
How is that link comming?
