    Do deep sub-folder links have little value?

    Hi Guys,

    How can you determine the value of external links which are deep inside a website. Two examples:


    Two sub-folders deep.


    One sub-folder deep.

    These links are clearly far from the homepage, so was wondering if they are worthless or how can you determine the value of them?

    If these are linked from the home page, and assuming the home page itself has a significant amount of link juice pointed toward it, they will be of value. You simply divide the number of total links on the home page, internal and external to determine. For example, if there are ten links on the home page, that deep page will receive 1/10 of the total Page Rank (even though the term is no longer used). It will also receive link juice from other pages on the site that link to it.
