Utilizing Descriptive Text

From Help Wiki

How to write meaningful descriptive text.

To create a better experience for users, write meaningful link text that indicates the link's destination and/or provides a description of the content being linked to.

For Example:

Accessibility Checklist by UW versus http://www.washington.edu/accessibility/checklist/.
