Has anyone seen fairly current research analyzing the trade-offs redundant
links (e.g., in-line links with text, as well as, the same links in lists
along the margins of a page)? I'm really looking for research instead of
recommendations from non-researchers.
The trade-off revolves around making it easier to FIND a link when it's
located in multiple places versus making it easier to OVERLOOK a link
surrounded by visual clutter (Hick-Hyman Law, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hick's_law). What's the latest on how to best
used duplicated links.
