    NoIndex, DoFollow


    Why someone wants to create a page with the attribute noindex but do follow? I understand that the page will not be indexed but the links will be follow. My question is:

    - Why the owner of the page wants to do this?

    - Do I get the SEO juice of the link?

    If there is a page behind that needs indexed and is only accessible from this page.


    - Do I get the SEO juice of the link?
    Do noindex,follow pages pass pagerank / link juice? - Webmasters Stack Exchange
    According to that it looks like it is.

    Is probably "noindex" because it's a competition page, (thus temporary).
    It does link to their "Competitions" page, and all their other menu links, as well as to the apartment provider... No point wasting the link-juice!

    Addressing the primary concern here- I think even though Google doesn't index or show up noindexed URLs in the SERPs, they can crawl the content on the page.
