Do deindexed links still pass juice? My results

    On one of my networks, I have:

    8 money sites each with about 20 homepage PBN links.

    Over the past 2 months, roughly half of my PBN sites have been deindexed.

    The rankings for the money sites have not fallen from top positions, however.

    I'm planning on trying to replace these deindexed links with links on my other network(still indexed).

    However, I'd like to hear other people's experience with this. Should I put the deindexed sites "down" or leave them up? It seems like they might still pass juice even though it seems like they would not.

    I haven't tested it myself but I'd check the raw access logs and see if google bots are still crawling those deindexed sites. If it does, then I'd create a quick web 2.0 and link it from those deindexed sites so I can see if its passing the link juice or not. If it does, am all merry and don't have to worry about the indexing.

    noindex and nofollow are two different things.

    But, if you've been removed for being pure spam, your links are worthless.

    There was a thread lately that mentioned how even with removed (or in your case deindexed) links, sites continue to rank. So i don't think the fact that you are still haven't lost any rankings has anything to do with links from deindexed sites helping your rankings, but rather that google hasn't gotten around to updating your rankings based on this new information yet - Most likely you will notice something in the next penguin refresh.

    May be the sites are ranking for a different reason. If I were you then I will remove my link from the deindex domain asap.

    Take a bogus keyword and try to rank something new with the supposedly deindexed sites.

    Deindexed sites don't pass any link juice. Deindexed indicates that Google no longer considers that site worthy of being in their index, so why then would Google count links from it?

    It takes time for a site to drop in the rankings after it loses its backlinks and sometimes they don't drop at all because the number of links they lost aren't enough for them to lose their positions.

    I think you should get the deindexed sites down and replace the links.

    This isn't true man. A lot of your posts have been inaccurate lately. I don't know what you've been reading, but if you're not using these tactics yourself and testing things you shouldn't be commenting on these threads. I know a very active member here using deindexed domains to rank sites as PBN's and he's doing quite well. The bigger factor is WHY they got deindexed. SPAM versus simply not being used anymore are two WAY diff. things.
