I don't know if this answers your question, but if you look at the Anchor Text area in wmt, there are three different things thrown together in the same "How your data is linked" list. Anchor text from outside; linking text from your own navigation; linking text from intenal # links. You can't tell which is which unless you already know.
I didn't know that internal # links are shown in the "How your data is linked" list. I think when you say internal # links, you mean links on a page linking to a specific section of the same page and not links going from one page to another, but I just wanted to make sure?
My internal # links, I believe, are not showing. Could this be because in this list, only the most popular links are shown, and the internal # links that I have only appear on the site once? They don't repeat a couple of times. They all have different anchor texts.
Could the fact that the 3 types of links are all in the list mean that the # links are counted as internal links and, as a result, the answer to my question would be 15?
Also, this could also suggest that the navigation links are also counted? Some have mentioned that the search engines differentiate links based on where they are located (e.g., navigation, body text) and maybe they do, but maybe internal links from different parts of a page are looked at.
