It depends on the document, whether you are predominantly using commands like
\gls (which I usually do) or commands like
\glslink (as in your question), and if you are using a sophisticated text editor that can be configured to insert commands through key-mappings or similar to reduce typing.
If you have a document that's like a reference book or user manual, where most readers dip in and out rather than reading from start to finish, then they may start mid-chapter if they've looked something up from the index (or used the PDF viewer's search function). In which case, they may miss the first link if you are only hyperlinking once per chapter or on first use only. If you hide the links, then they are less intrusive but are still available to help the drop-in reader who may be unfamiliar with the terms.
If you are using commands like
\gls (rather than providing the link text with
\glsdisp), then this can help consistency. For example, in English some compound words are hyphenated and some aren't. I can't always remember, but if I'm using
\gls then I only need to look it up when I'm defining the entry not every time I use it. Similarly, if the term requires some special formatting.
For example, both the
bib2gls user manual and the accompanying introductory guide have a lot of hyperlinks resulting from
\gls (or similar), but they both use:
so they don't stand out.
If you are using
\glslink a lot due to declension, then I recommend adding keys as per Christian's answer. If you do only want the occasional hyperlink, instead of indexing only the first use, another possibility is to switch off the hyperlinks by default and only enable them for specific use cases. For example:
% \glslinkpresetkeys requires glossaries-extra.sty:
\printunsrtglossary % requires glossaries-extra.sty
+ modifier acts like a shortcut for the
hyper=true option and works for all the
\glstext type of commands, as well as the commands created by
\glsaddkey. (The opposite is the
* modifier which applies
If you have an editor, supervisor, proof-reader or beta readers, then it might be worth asking them whether they find hyperlinks helpful or distracting, since writing is ultimately for the reader's benefit.
