If a page has more than one link to the same target page, Google accepts the first link and ignores any others... or so I have been lead to believe.
I'm wondering if that "rule" applies where there is a link in the site navigation (ie.. on every page) and the same link is repeated in the content of a page.
I'm wondering if the in-content link will be ignored due to the "rule" that says all links after the first are ignored?
An in-content link on the other hand is an editorial decision to offer the reader additional information about the subject they are reading.
I see two very different purposes.... do we know if Google takes the same approach?
