    I'm putting together a site that probably won't have terribly specific pages, which may be a disadvantage in terms of targeting specific keywords/phrases for SEO. With many topics on a single page, I'm considering having a sort of index at the top of the home page that uses fragment identifier links to link to specific parts of the page (mostly as a navigational tool for the user). Obviously this can't have the same SEO value of actual links to another page, but will the link text take on any of the value of "normal" links that lead to a different page? I know fragment identifier links never show up in SERPs, but do they get spidered at all and does this have any affect on results/rankings?

    Best guess is that the SE will just ignore everything after the "#"

    Well, the page will be spidered as are all normal pages and that, my friend, is it. There's no SEO value to #position type links at all.

    Bummer. Somehow I knew you would know this one, though.

    Well, at least it won't count against me!
