Include a link, you doofus!

Why don’t reviewers include links to the products they’re reviewing? This negative trend has been getting worse and worse.

The review that triggered this post was of a review of Microsoft Streets & Trips over at

Not once does the author provide a link to the product home page or any place to buy the product. The latter isn’t such a big deal but not providing the former just adds a burden on your readers. Are you doing reviews to aid your readers or is it just for ego?

They aren’t the only ones that do this. Reviews all over the web fail to provide product links. Why?!
