    Question:

    If a page consists of several graphics with text links beneath them, is it best to have both the graphic and text as links, (ie to the same product) or just the text as a link?

    Better from what perspective ? Your visitors would expect product images to be linked (usually to larger images of the same product), so linking both the graphics and the text makes good sense to me.

    If any visitors expect bigger pix of what's on my sites, I'd say they need a link to glasses, LOL!

    (I always use big pictures when available. Squinting visitors don't convert very well!)

    But I do make sure the images are linked. To the merchant site! But that's for the purpose of selling the item, not SEO...

    Thanks

    I meant from the perspective of the spiders -

    I guess I'll link both graphics and text.

    images should be linked for humans.. i cant stand a site that is unnatural and the images don't "do the right thing" .. depends on layout and page design of course... whatever is natural
