I hope this is the right forum for this post.

I have been developing new content for my site and want to know the best way to link to the articles internally. I will have an introductory article for a particular category then be linking to the sub topics. Should the anchor text be of only the keyword or is it okay to link the whole title of the article?

Example 1:
Tips for buying outdoor widgets [outdoorwidgets.com] online.
Plastic outdoor widgets [outdoorwidgets.com]: What size and style do I need?
Choosing the right all weather widgets [outdoorwidgets.com].
The effects of sun on powder coated widgets [outdoorwidgets.com].

Example 2:
Tips for buying outdoor widgets online. [outdoorwidgets.com]
Plastic outdoor widgets: What size and style do I need? [outdoorwidgets.com]
Choosing the right all weather widgets. [outdoorwidgets.com]
The effects of sun on powder coated widgets. [outdoorwidgets.com]

Example 2 will look better as far as consistency I think, but I am worried about the other words having a negative effect on the link/keywords itself.

What are your thoughts?
