  • Eli Brown published thread Does Google index hash URL segment?

    Hash in URL means anchor on that page. But if I use links like `something.com/page.html#section` does Google index this link as a separate page, so index would now contain both `something.com/page.html` and `something.com/page.html#section`? Obviously, where I see problem with that is duplicate content, which could be big issue for some sites (including my sites). I just don't believe Google would be so stupid and index it that way. Or at least, there must be a way to fix it (something like `rel=canonical`). I have no evidence that I was penalized for using #section, but it got me thinking lately...
