Internal Links will NOT (typically) hurt you


First found on @SEroundtable blog post, discussing WMW thread : you have NO idea how often I hear webmasters talk about losing pagerank from internal links ... basically, Matt says: you're fine to internally link however you want just don't be a spammy fiend [the paraphrase is mine ;) ]

Here is the quote:

"...Typically, internal website links will not cause you any sort of trouble. Now, the reason why I say ‘typically not’ rather than a hard ‘no’ is just because as soon as I say a hard ‘no’ there will be someone who has like five thousand links – all with the exact same anchor text on one page..."

Here is the video from Matt Cutts:
