Using anchors and potential for duplicate content
Anchors as internal links and potential for duplicate content issues

Is there a general conscience around using anchors to link to content within a single page? I would assume the simple solution is to make sure to block any URL with a # in it via the robots.txt?

Thus if the anchor looks like:

<a name="chapter4"></a>

and the following will resolve:


<a href="http://www.domain.com#chapter4">Chapter 4</a>

The line in the robots.txt should look like this?


Disallow: /*#*

The Fragment Identifier is a client side function. The bot will stop at the # symbol.
