Do multiple links from one page to another page count?

Hi Matt. If we add more than one links from page A to page B, do we pass more PageRank juice and additional anchor text info? Also can you tell us if links from A to A count? WebSEOAnalytics

  1. hello,i wantedto ask, like i build a website and from the c panel, i can create another single webpage ? like lets say yahoo,com then from the c panel i could create a page which would have a link and i can put my pic when i send to myself, it would open as a page

  2. We have two forms of Navigation on our site, TopNav & LeftNav. The TopNav allows users to access any part of the site no matter where they are, like a sitemap. The LeftNav is relevant to the the current page the user is on. Because of this double navigation we have well over 100 links on every page. For the sake of PR sculpting would it be wise to add a rel="nofollow" tag to the links in the TopNav? Keep in mind that the bots can access all the links in the TopNav from the copy. Thanks

  3. @whichgroup Well, if you had only page B linking to page A (with links to no other pages), then it wouldn't matter if you had just 1 link or 10000 links. It would still pass the same amount of link juice. I suppose it is different when there are more pages involved, since (as Mat says) all links get equal amount of juice. Therefore some pages may get 2/4 of the total juice, while others get 1/4 (for example).

  4. Holy COW!

    Matt, the first half of this is the most direct answer to the kind of question you usually answer indirectly I've ever seen you kick up! Seriously? you can mold the value of your PageRank that way and you're saying so out loud?

    Umm . . . but yeah, what you said afterward is sure right, huh? Valuable content means more than anything else!
