WBF Question- https://moz.com/blog/links-headers-footers-navigation-impact-seo
"Google ignores multiple links to the same URL. This is actually true internal and external. For this reason, if you`re going ahead and trying to stuff in links in your internal content to other pages, thinking that you can get better anchor text value, well look, if they`re already in your navigation, you`re not getting any additional value."
I did not know this about anchor text. Just to clarify, two links on a page will pass link equity (although it will vary based on page placement), but only the anchor text value of the first link will be applied?
