I'm just searching for possibilities as I lost 90-95% of Googles traffic since early June in the 'American Whisky' update. Not commercial, but I would like to know or at least have some idea why.
The anchor link does does two things:-
1. Scroll to the top of page in this case because there is no valid <a name="none"> anchor on the page, if there was a valid anchor name link in IE it would bring it to the top of page if it was off screen.
2. Load a pop-up window with the larger image, when you click on the image or the text 'larger image'. Just an option if you want a bigger picture without downloading it onto the page.
