I don't know that I'd call it archaic, but many designers consider it bad style... partly because it's wordier than necessary, and partly because your user is not necessarily clicking.

I am developing a web based training, and throughout the training I
advise the learner to "Click here" to access additional information. For
instance "Click here to go to the top of the page." "Click here to
access navigation tips." A co-worker claims that "Click here" is
archaic, that I should just say "Top" and "Navigation Tips." I disagree.
What are your thoughts?
