However, if PAGE A mentions something that PAGE B specifically addresses and provides further detail that would be useful to a reader of PAGE A's content then by all means link to PAGE B from A. That link is good for your user... AND the search engines.
Ok, let me ask you this:
There are several pages that link to my blue-widgets.html page that may not be the best fit. However, if I am running a special on blue widgets, and I am "advertising" it on my own site (in terms of mentioning it in numerous pages), is that going to hurt me?
So if I have the text:
Use the following link to save 10% off of our <link>Blue Widgets</link> for a limited time only.
Is that causing me problems?
