Related links help the user discover other content available (for example, highlighting Women's equality in the LGBTI Equality section).
What's next links are optional. Only use these if there is a clear next step.
Rules for related links:
- create short, descriptive links with no full stop
- no more than 7 links on a page
- do add links that could be useful for a reader but aren't directly related to the content
- don't add related links that are already listed in the body content
Example of link text:
'Action plan to improve Aboriginal Victorians health and wellbeing'
Avoid using, 'Korin Korin Balit-Djak' (the actual name of the document) as it doesn't make it clear what is behind the link.
We don't link to:
- media entities (for example, The Age or Herald-Sun)
- commercial entities (unless there is a relationship or case study to highlight)
- videos (we embed them)
- PDFs (we use the document embed feature, which includes a display of format and file size for accessibility)
- MP's, minister's or political parties' websites
We do link to:
- evidence-based links, for example, universities, The Conversation
