Saving a position records a place in a buffer so that you can move back there later. Moving to a saved position switches to that buffer and moves point to that place in it.
To save the current position of point in a register, choose a name r and type C-x r SPC r. The register r retains the position thus saved until you store something else in that register.
The command C-x r j r moves point to the position recorded in register r. The register is not affected; it continues to record the same position. You can jump to the saved position any number of times.
