    Recently I answered a staff YA Question to put questions to Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn and my question (answer) was chosen as best answer.

    I didnt put http:// at the start of my link. Un-clickable

    Do you have any DOH moments in your SEO history?

    edit: I am level 2

    I'm pretty sure Yahoo Answers doesn't allow you to put in hyperlinks until you are at a certain rep... Last time I tried it wouldn't convert a http://www link.

    Meaning you did it right, and they reformatted your link to make the link un-clickable.

    You must be level 2 I think, because I now can place a clickable link in the source box.

    Don't worry if people are interested they will copy and paste it into their browser, it is not like you forgot to put the link it, should be fine

    Unfortunately no

    You have to be Level 2 (250 posts) which I am and the links must include the http:// prefix
