Ranking for multiple keywords = reduced ranking for each of those?

    About a week ago I read a post in some topic on this forum (can't remember which one it was) where someone was claiming that if you build backlinks for some url (site) for multiple keywords, ranking will somehow split amongst them.

    For example you first build backlinks for keyword "apple" and rank well. Then you start building backlinks for keywords "peach", "pear" and "orange" to the same page. By doing that you'll start ranking worse for "apple" even though you still have the same amount of "apple" backlinks.

    Is that true?

    If what you saying is true then you will never find one page ranking for multiple keywords... May be in less competitive niche but not in tough market...

    What exactly would Google be penalizing you for?

    I personally highly doubt this theory. It was posted by someone else here on this forum. I don't think Google is supposed to be punishing you. Just dividing your "Google pool" amongst multiple keywords instead of assigning all of it to just one.
