When creating sites or learning activities, links should not be the source of the content. Allow the reader to get the gist of this information by the information chunk that was provided in the content. The misuse of links can be distracting as they are usually identified by a different color or underlined. Another pitfall to added too many links is that it can cause a tangent, spinning users out of control forgetting how they got there in the first place and what was their original intent! Links half way through can also break readers train of concentration.
