Google linking directly to part of page vetofunk msg:4086471 3:48 pm on Feb 24, 2010 (gmt 0) I have a page on one of our sites that has links on the page that link you further down the page, I think it's called bookmarking (<A HREF="#bottom">). Well I was looking at the Google serps for the keyword of this link text and noticed it was shown in the serp description with anchor text: Jump to <a>The Name of the link</a>‎:...rest of serp description. It's hard to explain it without giving a direct link to the serp, but it seems Google sees the bookmarked link, and then displays it linked in the description of our site on the serp. This gives us 3 links within our serp result, the title linked, the description keyword linked and the url linked. Anyone see this before?

Snippet links to page fragment identifiers (hash marks) started showing up in the Google SERPs in the second half of 2009, I know we had a discussion about it but so far I can't locate it. I will share the link if I do. In fact, Google now has a patent about creating an "artificial anchor" [ webmasterworld.com] to part of a page - even if the page itself does NOT have its own fragment identifier. So far that has not shown up in practice. Robert Charlton msg:4086566 6:20 pm on Feb 24, 2010 (gmt 0)
