Hi. I'm planning to pass two certifications: Web Component Certification and Web Services Certification.
Do you think it is a good idea? Or just one would be enough? Which one then?
If I choose to get them both, what order do you recommend?
Is the knowledge from one of them helpful with getting the other?
I just passed OCPJP 6.

The two exams are different and they test one's skills of different specifications and paradigm.

Visit the Oracle site and check both exams' objectives.

The fact that you do not understand what Web services are means you have no experience in that area. It is pointless to certify on something that you do not have experience on. These certifications are helpful to people who are in the field. This is the reason why I can't go on and do Architect exams as this is pointless until i am actually employed in the field.

In very basic terms, Web Services are services deployed online that clients can utilize through a number of protocols such as SOAP. Clients can be any application written in any language.

Web Component certification deals with the specification request for developing Java Web Applications..

Of course you are right. There is no point to get the certificate right now. That's why I'm going to learn the stuff first.
