Hyperlinks should inform users where clicking the link will actually take them.

 

Why is this important?

Screen reading applications allow users to list the links on the page in a separate dialog window. This feature allows a user to quickly scan through all of the links on a web page. Unfortunately, it also strips away the surrounding content leaving the user only with the link text provided.
