I have recently started to use more hyperlinks in my blogs and feel pretty comfortable doing so. However, I have learned as a reader of other blogs, articles, etc. that there can be such a thing as too many hyperlinks. In my opinion, I notice when I read a certain piece online that contains several, meaning maybe 5 or more, the text is tiresome to read. I find myself clicking on all the links to find out more information and the next thing I know I have ten windows open and can’t remember where I started. This is just in some cases, other times I find hyperlinks very useful and I end up finding more information/connections on a particular topic that I originally thought I would never find. So….I am a fan of hyperlinks, most of the time, but can you have too many hyperlinks? Is there a magic number out there that we should all stick with?
Ok, I think I have hit my limit of hyperlinks.
