SEO: Linking to current page, multiple times

by digout   Last Updated January 12, 2018 15:04 PM

Scenario: A listing template consists of paginated results showing 20 items each time. Each listing is a card for a company which links to their company page. The results are based on the current category being browsed i.e. "Restaurants". The design requires each listing to list and link to all categories the company is assigned to (including the current category being viewed).

Company 1
Restaurant, Bar, Club

Company 2
Restaurant, Cafe


Company 20
Restaurant, Live Music, Bar

Each category is linked to another category page, also the current one is linked to the current section . (Restaurants in this example)

Will google deem this as a bad thing linking so many times to the current page / section?
