Do URLs with # affect PR passed?
domain.com/ compared to domain.com/#position_on_page

 6:09 pm on Jul 11, 2003 (gmt 0)

When someone links to a position on your page (http://www.domain.com/#position_on_page), is it the same as a link to the page itself (http://www.domain.com/), from a PageRank perspective? In order words, do links to the former case count as links to the page itself, or are such links treated a 'separate' pages for PR calculation purposes?

Does anyone have an opinion/experience with this?

so far as I can tell from my site, domain.org/page.htm#keyterm is treated as just
another internal link to page.htm

I would try to look at the backlinks. If links of the form www.domain.com/page.htm#position_on_page are shown as backlinks using the link command link:www.domain.com/page.htm then they are (probably) treated as a normal link.

Since Google has no use for the #wherever part I would suspect that it truncates it, and only uses the filename.
