    Smile below link or link below

    "refer to the below link" or "refer to the link below"

    Which word order is correct or more common?
    One occasion I was told by a native speak to use "below+(noun)."
    For me, below+(noun) somehow sounds a bit noble, but (noun)+below seems more common.
    Thank you.

    Re: below link or link below

    "Refer to the link below" is more natural. It is like a shortened version of "Refer to the link which appears below" or "Refer to the link I have given below".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
