I saw this on a website that I am working on:
If I do a search for the domain name and the phrases in the navigation text, the pages of the site show up in the SERP and most of them show the navigation, but a couple of them don't. The ones that don't show the navigation have a link in the body text that have some similarity to the anchor text in the navigation link.
This is just an example that I thought of, but it will show you what I am seeing. I enter the following in the search box (widgetbuilding is the domain without the extension):
widgetbuilding about us history seo services results testimonials
After typing the above, I see the pages of the site in the SERP and most of them show the navigation anchor text.
The ones that do not show the navigation anchor text have a link in the body section such as SEO Services for Long-term Campaign so for that page in the SERP, under the title tag, I see SOME TEXT....SEO Services for Long-term Campaign. Both the link in the navigation and in the body text are going to the same page.
Could this mean that only one of the links is being counted because they are seen as the same, and I am seeing the one that is counted from the page?
Should I change one of them so that both of them are counted? The one in the navigation I think that I will keep, maybe the one in the body text I can change so that it doesn't start the same way as the one in the navigation?
