Having multi links to the same site on the same page

Msg#: 4596721 posted 12:45 pm on Jul 26, 2013 (gmt 0)

i've a page which reviews other website.
since will review many aspects of this site and it's a long article we've 5 different links to this site on the same page.
is this problematic in google eyes?

the links are not direct - javascript that on click opens a window that redirects to the site we review.

I've had a similar page (with 10 deep links) on one site for a couple of years and it still ranks well so I would say it's fine as long as the links are relevant to the user and fit in with the flow of the review.

I might be a tad careful about anchor text, but otherwise - why not.

1. we're not trying to manipulate anything - the reviewed site is not ours and they asked for 5 links even with nofollow or anything just to have as many action button as we can cause the review is long.
2. the reviewed site is not paying us anything for link or anything like that. we're an affiliates of them.
3. we use Javascript "on click" in order to track our Goals on google analytics (is there a better way to track Goals?)
4. i don't want to get in trouble with google that's why i'm asking that before the page goes online.

Thanks for all your help.

As far as I know there is the rule "only first link counts"(for Google).
