I like the term "Link Bomb" - it conveys the message well. I prefer not to see links of any kind in the middle of a story. They distract if I click them, and if I don't, I have to remember to come back later.
I may include extra links at the bottom to other sources, not my articles, to provide additional support or alternative views to the story.
I may add links to other of my stories if they fit together. Links without a direct relationship to the story should not be included.
In either case, I provide a brief explanation of why they are there.
If at the bottom, I have the choice to ignore them of click them. It's a harder choice in the middle of an article.
