How do you do linking to relevant resources

OK, so firstly this may seem like an odd question.


However, I have a specific angle on this.


Usually when we are linking to a relevant resource the keyword or cited report or company will usually be the anchor text. However, I have been thinking a lot about this and just saw Kevin Indig do this using a more academic style of reference such as ....


In a recent study[1] ....


where the [1] is a link to the reference on the page to a list of resources used. I personally like this idea and have been thinking a lot about it.


Especially since Google is more and more looking for scientific reports and actual research from experts in a field.


What do you guys think about this?

I like your thought process here. Actually no, I love it.

"Especially since Google is more and more looking for scientific reports and actual research from experts in a field." - This pretty much nailed it.

Very good for link building - not keyword-rich anchors, but oozes authority in my opinion. Thanks for sharing and I'll more than likely be trying this approach on my personal project.

Good advice?
