Does having two links on the same page with two different anchor text has double benefit for the linked site or does the second link is ignored by search engines.

It's really too broad a quesiton - which search engines, which sites, which context, which types of links, etc.?

Generally, there's nothing wrong with different links with different text anchors as and when you can control them - but obviously there are advantages with trying to get links across more domains and IP ranges, rather than getting more links on a single page.

Google just ignore them right not see as spam link or duplicate link? Does Google ignore the link if you put the link in top of navigation and also in the footer?

Only one link per url is generally accepted. If you want to play games by trying to change anchor text or link to different pages you might get ahead or you might invite filtering. It's not worth it to try to play unfair and the consequences could be dire.

Hi all,

I do not know the right answer but let's build an example.

1. On page1 there are only link1 pointing to site1
I think that (almost) all page1 influence goes to site1

2. On page1 there are 2 links, link1 pointing to site1 and link2 pointing to site2. In that case the page1 influence should go to site1 and site2 divided in equal parts (almost half for each site)

3. On page1 there are 3 links, link1 and link2 pointing to site1 and link3 pointing to site2. In that case, in my opinion, almost 2/3 from page1 potential goes to site1 and almost 1/3 to site2.

Is it true? Does anybody know?

i dont think you will get double benefit if the anchor text is same for both links, but do believe that two different anchors will help that URL to rank well for both the two keywords(which are provided as anchor text).

What do u guys think?

interval, That's a very interesting scenario/question.

Although I do not have a direct experience with this scenario, I would never provide 2 links to the same URL (not site) from the same page; BUT I would surely provide 2 links with different anchor texts on the same page to 2 different URLs of another website.

I think it's much safer to proceed like this and may give you even better SE performance.

Best luck with your case and please keep us informed how it's going.

I don't know for sure if you'll get credit for multiple links from the same page or not.

But, multiple links on the same page to a common page using different anchor text can work very well in my experience.

It's a great way to attract the attention of folks who might visit the page for different reasons, or who might get a better idea of what they'll find on the page.

I would't overdo it, but 2 - 3 links can work well for directing traffic.
