SEO - Google index a specific part of a link

Question:

Tag: seo,google-search

Google displays links to pages in its search results by taking all the text inside an tag as the link. So this:

<a href="#">
   <span>1</span> This is a great story
</a>

displays in Google search results as:

1 This is a great story

Is there any way to tell Google to index a specific part of the link text, e.g.

<a href="#">
   <span class="dont-index-me">1</span>
   <span class="index-me">This is a great story</span>
</a>

So I can have just: 'This is a great story'.

Or is the only option to change the markup:

<span>1</span> <a href="#">This is a great story</a>

Answer:

No. Google will index an entire page's contents. there is no way to tell Google to ignore part of a page. There are black hat techniques, of course, but those just get you banned if you get caught and aren't worth the risk.
