Let's say your site is about widgets and widgets is your main keyword
term and your site has 10 internal pages and all 10 pages are strongly
related to widgets (blue widgets, red widgets, expensive widgets ect.).
For your site map navigation links would it be a bad or good idea just
to use the term 'widgets' for the anchor text of all 10 links for the 10
internal pages and also for the index page link? Would Google see that
as spamming and penalize the site? Would it better to have blue widgets,
red widgets etc and only have just 'widgets' for the index page link?
The idea behind naming all your link anchor 'widgets' is two fold, one
to make the pages very relevant and two maybe to get more then just the
index page listed high up for a 'widget' search.

Also what about incoming links for the site. If you were able to get
other sites to list all 11 of your links (index page and 10 internals)
at their site as a link exchange would the same hold true as above, and
would it be bad or good for them to just use the term 'widget' for the
anchor text for all 11 of the links for your site? Would there be any
difference as far as incoming links go from other sites or would the
same penalties apply?

Do what is best for your Internet visitor. Google will respond the way
it responds.

Forget worrying about incoming links. Simply craft your content
naturally with the visitor as your main focus and then keep doing
