    Multiple links, unique anchor text, same page


    I know that multiple links with the same anchor text on a single page don't do you alot of good as far as ranking under the term. I also know that you only get credit for the first link as far a PR.

    But if you have multiple links on an external page (another site), with different anchor text, pointing to different pages within or on your site, does that help as far as ranking/placement for each of those terms seperately in Google?


    Another way to explain this, assume that site A(an external site not under my control) gives me several links for each of my categories on one of it's well ranked and PR'd. The links have different anchor text relevent to each category and the links point to each of those category pages, rather than to a single page.

    Will this help improve my ranking for those category pages under those terms when search in Google ?

    Thinking that every link helps ( more or less, depends on a few factors ) I'd say yes, those links could be useful. I can see it happening many times and sometimes I do it myself, but don't forget about relevancy between the page where your links will appear and the pages that receive those links. And... be reasonable ( don't add a s***load of links on that page )

    I was fortunate to get links to multiple pages on my site from a single PR7 .edu page. Just a couple days later ALL of those pages that were hit with the links got a big SERP boost.

    But yahoo only counts them once in a linkdomain: querry. Also most other link analysis programs see them just one time.

    Great gift however

    Since PR is a vote from one page to another, I would assume that duplicated links would simply overwrite existing links in the database. But links to different pages would be good.

    We ran a couple of experiments using duplicate links last year....
    Added two links to the home page of a ranking site ...

    With different anchor text and pointing to the same page, both keywords appeared in SERPs. So both links were recorded and indexed with the unique text.

    Same with different anchor text and pointing to different pages.

    Duplicated links only got counted once. The keyword appeared in SERPs but there was no way to determine which link was recorded.

    What I was wondering about was multiple links on a page, Each having different anchor text and pointing to a different page within my site.

    That is OK ... page rank is assigned to each unique URL.

    There would be no penalty, in effect this would be no different than a menu on your own site. Since PR is split among all links on a page, there is no unfair advantage.

    Nice image - but what is it?

    My question was --

    -Site A-HP ++++++ -Site B-HP
    -page A-a (links to) -page B-a
    -page A-b (links to) -page B-b
    -page A-c (links to) -page B-c

    basically site A (an informational site) creates one page for each product and links to product pages of site B with a-text being the product name. An Ideal situation !

    Anyone have experience with this type of setup?

    Closest thing I have to your situation is a couple sites have links on their home page to my home page (Aa --> Ba) and they also point to my link page from their link page (Ab --> Bb).

    Total natural and not uncommon at all ...

    I would bet some sites have hundreds of links pointing to articles on CNN, from their internal pages.

    Why do you think this is unusual?

    If those pages are related to yours ... you should be very happy about that deal
