It sounds like a stupid question, but I couldn't find an answer: Are too many empty anchor links bad for SEO? We have 4-6 empty anchor links per page that trigger actions like a contact popup form, Woocommerce tabs on a product page etc. The syntax is like: domain.com/# or domain.com/#do-something These links do NOT link to specific HTML content (like the good old back-to-top link). Our SEO expert does not like it, since his tools found too many internal links linking to the very same pages.
As a user I would say: So what? However, our expert is not happy with it. Do these links do any harm in terms of SEO? I'm pretty surprised that this seems still to be debatable in the year 2020.
