Url#bookmark Usage And Google
Posted 28 March 2011 - 08:15 AM
On the page pagelocation.htm the following code is then included, the user would end up on that part of the page after clicking the above link on a different page of the website.
<a id="comment38" href="pagelocation.htm#comment38" class="comment-anchor">nr 38</a>
As you can see this code is also a link, linking to its own location.
My question now if in general, the additional #bookmarkname in url's can confuse Google?
Or does Google understand this flawlessly and would it never cause issues?
I was thinking myself that it may result in Google thinking that pagelocation.htm#comment38 would be a different url than pagelocation.htm and would therefore think to identical pages exist with different urls.
Related to this, I was wondering if it would be useful to use the canonical tag to avoid any issues?
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.mysite.co...gelocation.htm" /> that would be in this case I guess

It's perfectly fine with Google, and a great way to do it so that you're not creating multiple URLs to the same page.
It shouldn't be necessary.

Does everybody agree on this or are there other opinions?
