    Do non-indexed pages pass link juice


    Hi

    This is probably a stupid question so forgive me: do non-indexed pages pass any value to pages they are linking to. My reasoning is if Google hasn't indexed a page, there is no point obtaining a link from it, no matter what the metrics, as the page will pass no value to the page it's linking to.

    Any advice/help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    noindex pages...would mean it's not going in the index, nofollow is what your describing.

    I mean the page isn't in Google's index. If I use the site: operator using the url of the page, that particular url isn't found in Google.

    If the page isn't found in Google's index, does it still pass link juice to pages it links to?

    Thanks for your help.

    If Google does not know the page exists then no, it's can't pass PR.
