I'm faced with a situation where I may have multiple paths to a single page from the main navigation. If I were to lay out both paths it would look like this:
Menu item 1 > Parent 1 > example page
Menu item 2 > Parent 2 > example page
Example page is the same in both scenarios. Does this create bad navigation or a hierarchy that does not flow naturally?
According to Google's "Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide" -
"Create a naturally flowing hierarchy - Make it as easy as possible for users to go from general content to the more specific content they want on your site. Add navigation pages when it makes sense and effectively work these into your internal link structure."
