Imagine you go slap happy with the internal linking on your site. You try to make sure you effectively link all important keywords on your pages to the appropriate internal pages but you go overboard. Can it hurt you?

We asked this question less than a month ago, after reading a WebmasterWorld thread. And most SEOs believe you can indeed hurt your SEO efforts by over linking to internal pages.

Of the 182 responses, 60% said Yes, you can hurt yourself by over linking internal links. 37% said no you can't.

The other responses mostly say, "it depends."

Forum discussion continued at WebmasterWorld.
