    link text again


    if i have 10 links to www.mydomain.com with the link text "blue widgets" will this in any way boost the page www.mydomain.com/blue-widgets.htm? i.e do the links have to point to blue-widgets.htm or can they just point to the domain for the link text to take effect?

    if u link to the homepage then weight will go indirectly and moreover if homepage also has more links (obviously it will) then the weight gets distributed.......

    linking to this .htm page itself also has another advantage - it has this keyword in its filename - google is giving a lot of weight to pages having keywords in filenames.......
