Do you think I should tell them not to hyperlink it? Because the link is coming from such a powerful source I feel ok, but not sure if anyone has had past experiences they can share?
(encouraging them to use the official domain name).
Not that one link will do much on its own, but getting a lot of legitimate 'earned' links from legitimate organizations can go a long way in my experience.
In my experience, even a few good links from major news organizations, academic libraries, and other trusted sources can be quite helpful.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth!
I would be more concerned about your server melting under the sudden flood of traffic and not being able to respond.
