While there is no rule that says that you cannot have two templated links to your home page via an image and then navigation, I would advise against it as a rule. As well, I advise against creating two different links to any page within your template design generally. However, this is sometimes done in places such as the footer and this is okay. Google will ...

You should NOT use nofollow on one of the links. nofollow tells search engines that you can't vouch fer the authenticity of the link. It may have been automatically created by a user or spammer. If you tell search engines they can't trust one such link on the page, they will automatically assume they can't trust either link on the page. Using nofollow ...

Don't worry about small things like this. It's perfectly fine to have both links. Don't nofollow either of the links.

Reddit links don't carry the nofollow link relationship unless they are from a users page on the network. In the examples you provide, they are followed links. There is no CSS or Javascript override or just served for Googlebot making publicly shared URL's nofollow. I fetched a page as Googlebot to confirm this also. You can see an example of which links ...

My answer to your question is go with #3. Don't use rel=canonical. I can't see a case where rel=canonical can help because you're not producing duplicate content. Based on your comment to your question, it sounds like you want smaller (archive) pages that link to the larger detailed pages. What you want to watch out for is the amount of content. If you ...

"archived pages" - a page that contains a list of titles/excerpts linking to other pages. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see how the rel=canonical tag is even relevant here? Isn't this the canonical page? Or can the page be changed/sorted/rearranged by a URL parameter or something? IMO the canonical tag should be simply omitted in this case. I ...
