Is there a consensus on the appropriate words to hyperlink? For example, in an article I have the sentence, "...many mainstream economists have recognized the pernicious role played by the Fed."
First, put aside your objections to my use of the passive voice. Now then: I am hyperlinking to this blog post. But which words in the excerpt above do I hyperlink? I see four plausible contenders:
(1) The whole thing.
(2) "mainstream economists"
(3) "mainstream economists have recognized"
For my article I chose (2), which (incidentally) is not how I would have footnoted this in a written paper. Any thoughts?
