    If you have say 15 links from one site going to your money site. Does Google only count a few of those links and discard the rest?

    Pauli66,

    It depends on the configuration. For example if all 15 links were leading from the same page to the same page on your website, Google may not give a lot of weight to all (or even any) of those links. If there were 15 links leading from the same page to 15 of your pages individually, then each of those pages would get some value out of that and all of those would probably be weighted as separate links. The same would be true for 15 pages linked from the origination site to 15 pages of the destination site.

    Remember that Google is obsessed with pleasing users. If there are linking scenarios that aren't helpful for users, Google will probably devalue those links whether immediately or down the road.

    Best,

    Shawn

    Google will count all those 15 links if they are do-follow.

    If I had 10 links from a Web.2.0 Home page with 5 posts all going to my moneysite homepage and the same inner page. Could that cause a penalty? I have been using this technique for web 2.0's and use a lot of generic anchors. But recently got an penalty. The keyword that I was ranking got hit and 50% of traffic lost to my site. In Ahefs it is showing a 30% anchor for the keyword I am trying to rank for that inner page. But I have all the links and it is no where near that. It's maybe 5%.
