VERY interesting question.
Spiders are fascinating critters, and I enjoy watching them.
I've often seen multiple (maybe 2-6) cob spiders in cobwebs, but that's the only case I can recall of ever seeing that. Scratch that - there's another I've seen. There's some kind of spider here (NJ, USA) that makes a strange sheet-like web that covers an area of 1 or 2 square yds about 3-6 feet off the ground anchored to low-medium density shrubbery and low hanging branches. These webs are uncommon, but when I see them they are usually shared by a small "community". I'd like to know what the spider is that makes them.
As for orb spiders, the ones responsible for the classic "charlotte's web" style of web, I've never observed more than one resident. Someday I'll come across 2 of these webs and remember this question. Then I'll test the issue... ;-)

Beyond that, I have to say something about another response here: Spiders have 4, 6, or 8 eyes, but no noses. "Scent" is meaningless to them.
And while I'm on the subject, birds will not kick their young out of the nest because of human scent.
