I noticed that you can use anchors on the headings. And then you can link them.And Google will pick that up.So it will show them in the search results,under the results, under the result itself, under the meta description,it will show the anchors that you marked up, or the headings.

JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

Yeah, if it’s a longer page, and we can understand the structure properly, and you have these– I don’t know what they’re called– jump marks or anchors within the page, where you can go directly to a specific part of the page, sometimes we do show that as a type of almost like side links below the page. OK, here is a question about redirects. Everybody loves redirects, 301 or 302. We should change our opinion from time to time, just to throw people off. Or maybe not. Redirect chain– a 302 to a 301 to a 200, or a 301 to a 200 directly– which one passes the most link juice or page rank? From our point of view, they essentially do the same thing. So you’re forwarding users from one page to another. And depending on which of these pages we keep in the index, that’ll be the one that collects all of these signals. So if we decide to index the destination page, then that one will be the one that collects the page rank and the other signals from that page. If we decide to index the redirecting page, then that will be the one that gets all of these. So it’s not the case that a 302 kills any page rank or that you need to do a 301, and if you combine a 301 with a 302, then you get 50%. Essentially we try to pick out which of these URLs we want to keep indexed, and that’s the one that’s going to get signals.
