    Two links from same page to same page


    I heard from some one that if you take two links from the contents of a same page directing to a single same page, the first will be considered by google and second will be ignored. Is it right?

    Yes. Google will not count that as two back-links, just one.
    However, they *might* include that link when dividing up page rank the way they do with no-follow links. I don't know and I am not sure anyone has a definite answer.

    I do this all the time.
    I cant say much about "ranking", but google will change the page title to the other anchor text depending on the query.

    IMO, Google still only recognizes the first link to any given page from any given page.

    What if second link is going to another page ? Google is going to count it.

    Lets forgot about seo, Anchor text links are consider as votes to another page ? All Agree ?
    If we link with same anchor text to same page then is it going to look natural ? Not at all.

    Oh so we aren't forgetting about SEO we are talking about SEO. It would be a lot easier if you kept things strait in your head.
    There is no such thing as an 'anchor text link' It is not a recognized term. There are links. And some links have anchor text.
    Links are *generally* votes for another page, but some are discounted because of no-follow tags, repeat links on the page, etc.

    Are you on illegal drugs? If twenty people link to bobplace with bobsplace as the anchor text in looks perfectly natural. In fact if every anchor was different I would put money on them being manufactured.

    Honestly, you need to read some of the stickies and previous conversions. You clearly are not a professional and you don't even know the right questions to ask.

    I think that's a very good question and has been in my mind for long time and i would also like to extend this question my question is if i make two links with different keywords to to different pages of a website and the source of links is the same web page will both the links get link juice.

    I think you should read the question before point out me. For your kind information question is "Two links from same page to same page" not twenty (people). And don't try to explain me anchor text variation.

    To be fair, Google most likely does not ignore the second as much as you don't get any extra juice to the page from having two links.

    Would be an interesting experiment to place two+ links on a page with the same target and change the anchor text to see if ranks increase for the anchors after the first.

    Dice79... Let me see.... we have over 41,000 links. Your experiment would be to change one link on a page that has two links going to the same page to see the effect on SERP
    results. Is that your proposal? Even if a page only has a couple of hundred links... what kind of change would your expect? Think about what you are saying.

    Thanks you all for help.
    Ok. And if two links from same page to a same page are such a kind that one link is on an image, second is on an anchored text, which link will be counted. Will it be same that first link will be counted even if it is image.
    And second thing is that if image link is counted, what text will google consider as linking with image. Will it be image title or alt tag?

    Google is moving slowly away from strictly using the anchor text to determine topic. I would expect the alt text of the image to be a very strong factor but even with text lings google is starting to try to look at the surrounding page for clues as to topic/relevance. If the page is about blue widgets and you put up a picture with the alt tag 'camera repair' google may or may not see that image as being relevent to camera repair, or blue widgets. It may also flag it as a likely advertisement and ignore part or all of the link 'juice' while reporting the existence of the link.
    It is a fairly strait forward attempt to reduce the influence of artificial links. If the page was about cameras, and the link said camera repair... chances are google would pick up on cameras and camera repair as topics the link was 'voting' on.

    The days of strait up telling google what to think with a few words in the right tag are over. Think more from a user perspective, and build pages that are natural while including important terms. And gather links from pages (not just sites but also pages) that are relevant to your topic.
