My wiki for https://interstellar-space-genesis.fandom.com/wiki has a large number of key concepts, many with appropriate icons, that are used all over the place, and many of them aren't immediately obvious to new players like Planetary Engineering and Ecological Level.
So I have a template for all of those that displays the icon if it has one; the normal text or an override to only display the icon; a tooltip using https://dev.fandom.com/wiki/Tooltips; and a link to the main page or section for that concept.
The result is many pages end up with a large number of repetitive links to pages they aren't really directly related to. For instance, many buildings boost Production or Planetary Engineering, so the Buildings page ends up with many links to those pages and just a couple of links to Infrastructure, which actually is a closely related concept to Buildings. I do have a category structure in which Colonies contains Buildings and Infrastructure.
So my question is: is this practice going to confuse google about the actual relations of pages to each other, or penalize the page for so many repetitive links? I liked the links because they are convenient to a user wanting to read more on the concept and mobile users who can't see the tooltips.
An extreme example is https://interstellar-space-genesis.fandom.com/wiki/Buildings -- every icon in the building notes used to be a link mainly for mobile users who didn't know what the icon stood for and couldn't see the tool tip, though I have removed most of those links afraid they would confuse google, so now they are just images--but I would like to add the links back. A page without the links removed is https://interstellar-space-genesis.fandom.com/wiki/Planetary_Engineering.
