So if Google finds a link like -
it would be able to index the written content of the object "widget". When someone executes a search, if the keywords are in the object "widget" to show the link like the one above.
This would give an even more accurate index as the link will point directly to the required infomation.
about three weeks after it went online. I thought that might have caused a problem.
Google indexed it as /newpage.html just fine.
In that regard i have been using links with url?pageID.
Thanks for reminding me that i can use #pageID and not waste all the PR of the links going to that page.
I agree with posts above that url#id does not create a new url within the mind of search engines (nor should it) I do have a number of pages that use that method ... as well as pages using that method specific to link anchor text ongoing algo testing. Googlebot does not seem to care if the link has a # in it, it just treats it like a link to the URL that does not contain the #.

No, you can't. Everything after # doesn't belong do URL anymore, and isn't even sent from browser to server (check with Mozilla HTTP Live-Headers). So no server-side application would see what's after # mark.
What a lovely way that would be to stitch up your comptitors' PR....This is true with the querystring as well, so no difference really. I've recked my own site from an accessibility feature, using links with?size=n that when clicked changes the page with a recalculated css sheet. Changed it now, but I know Google will see these links for ages.
Link to each page with hundreds of different #topic IDs each one seen as being a separate URL by the search engine.
I just thought if a search engine wants to be accurate, then it could be implemented.
