    It’s called a fragment identifier. It’s usually used as an anchor to navigate between sections on one page or single application websites.

    Can you tell me is it bad? Should I take it off? Does it have bad influence some how?

      Just because Google tells you to remove something do you trust that is correct. Do some testing see if it makes a difference. I rarely listen to Google.

      You’re right. I’m just sharing the link, my friend. I didn’t tell anyone to do anything.

    Well in one page website it acts as anchor tag. It tend to drop to certain target section like contact if the dev is using domainname.com/#contact and has id = contact

    Normally used on one page sites so the navigation takes the user to that section rather than a different page.
