    Alright, I know that putting a link on a site to another site gives linkjuice to the target site.

    But what about these sites I see where there are multiple links to the same site all coming from the same site? Isn't that redundant? In fact, I often see them on the same PAGE, like someone will make a blog on their site that says something like:

    "blah blah blah [link to money site] blah blah blah blah [another link to the same money site] blah blah blah [another link to the same site] etc."

    That seems like a waste of time to me because you're just dividing up the link juice, so instead of getting 1 link with 100% of the link juice you're getting 3 links each with 33% of the link juice... so same thing.

    Is there really an advantage to doing this or am I correct that it is pointless?

    SEO implications aside, one of the reasons you might see this is the mindset that says:

    The greater the number of click-able links on my blog/gateway site, the greater the possibility that one of those links will ultimately be clicked

    Understood. I was asking purely from an SEO perspective.

    You would be correct in your link juice calculations if the only outgoing links were to that particular site. What if there are 15 outgoing links on the page though? Your 1 link would mean you get 1/16th of the link juice. 3 links would be 1/6th (3/18) of the link juice. Plus you get the added benefit of more link text.

    Also, I heard that all backlinks from one IP (or is it website) counts as one backlink. If this is the case, then SEO wise it is as if you might as well just use one link.

    Can anyone confirm this, however?

    They all help.

    If it's multiple links on the same page, it counts as one link.

    If it's multiple pages linking to you, it counts as multiple links but the more there are the less weight they carry. Still better than one.

    All backlinks from an IP count, but they decrease in value like the ones from the same site.

    Raw link juice isn't the only point of doing that. It's a way to get multiple anchor texts attached to the destination site. If you only put one link per post, you'd have to write a new one for everything you want to rank under.
