The suggestion that I like to give to my developers is to try and use
"action words." I was more thinking of submit buttons when I made the
suggestion, but they sd it helped them focus their copywriting to making the
sentences active voice instead of passive voice, and that has yielded much
better linkable words.

you hit it on the head. <slang>  Let's approach it from the beginning
non mouse user's point of view or from the point of view of cognition.
Click here does not tell me what to do.
