I heard that Google bot places weight on links, according to their order in the page. So the first link is higher in importance, relevance etc. Is it true?
And if so, I wonder how the "order" is determined by Google. I mean, say my source code is like:
<a id='a1' href='x'>link1</a> <a id='a2' href='y'>link2</a>
but I styled them (with CSS) so that
link2 appears on top of
link1. Which link will be of higher importance? My spider-instincts tell me that source code counts, but hearing a lot of things and always trying to "treat Google like a human being", I'm in doubt.
the second href is y, not x. So links point to different pages. This could cause ambiguity.
