    I finally decided to get off my ass, reading threads on BHW and start something myself. I started a new project and it's a micro niche site, running on Wordpress. I have my homepage mostly linking to my other articles, but it double links to my articles. Meaning that there's 1 in the picture, 1 in the title, and 1 in the "read more" for featured posts.

    I was wondering if I should be worrying about double linking (and sometimes triple linking) my posts on the homepage - does this pass extra link juice, or is it just treated as 1 link?

    I think this won't be a problem and it's always advantage to link your article from image and text for better user experience. i don't know whether it give any extra juice.

    Right, the reason that it's there is for better a better user interface; I was just wondering if it's better for ranking purposes to pass less juice on to the articles and keep it on my homepage.

    Double or triple linking won't be a problem, because it still looks pretty natural. You'd need a real excessive amount to actually trigger some kind of penalty.

    I'm not doubting that it looks natural, and I am not thinking it would ever give a penalty. I am just wondering how it works in regard to link juice from my homepage to the articles it links to.

    Google only acknowledges the first link to a URL on a page, so if you use a keyword, image and naked URL, they will only acknowledge the first one.
