Does Canvas Data record links on a page?

I'm pondering whether it is possible to measure progress through a course based on the total number of links and pages that a student has viewed, out of the total possible pages and links available. 


I have a (hopefully) fairly simple question for someone with more data familiarity than me...


If an instructor adds a link to a module, Canvas Data would record the number of views of that link by each student.


Is any data recorded about students viewing a link when an instructor creates a page in a module, where that page contains the hyperlink (so it's just content on the page rather than being a separate item)?


Thanks in advance!
