This week a Tatum Dutile asks how many links should one have on a single page that all point to the same content?

Show Notes

This week we receive a call for help from Louisiana, where the gumbo isn't the only thing that's hot. Ms. Tatum Dutile had this to ask the panel…

Is it good to have multiple links to the same destination on one page, for instance, a link in the text, in the navigation bar, and on the right side of the page?  Or do too many redundant links make the page harder to use because people have to scan through more things to get to what they’re looking for?
