On my website, I have several sidebar widgets with internal links relevant to the content. But, the links go to certain sections of a page, not to the whole page.
#section1 is important as the user will end up right where he needs on the other page, but does this affect crawlability or SEO of the website overall?
Or do search engines know that
http://example.com/page/ is the actual link to the page and
#section1 is used for a different purpose?
