    For example a PR5 URL links to 90 internal links (on the same site) and 10 external links, the link juice that the PR5 URL is passing is divided by 10 only to the external links or by 100 to both? Thanks

    NO. Internal links do not get any SEO juice, but they are important because, it is one of the ways to decrease the bounce rate and time spent on site, two factors which have SEO values these days. Big Time

    Bounce rate having an effect on SEO is controversial (T0mmy calls this an SEO lie and I'm inclined to agree since some of my sites have high bounces rate, yet they rank well), although a good internal link structure can also help web crawlers crawl your site and find pages that they would have missed. Additionally, some source such as Moz state that a good internal link structure also helps spread link juice across your website.

    Of course internal links pass juice. This is why pages rank very quickly on authority sites.

    It's also why having a site with 100 unique pages of rich content is a lot more powerful than having a 1 page site.

    100's of internal links though are still only from 1 root domain. Powerful, but not as powerful as having 5 backlinks from 20 powerful domains.

    To put it short, yes internal links do pass link juice.

    Internal links do pass link juice. If I link from my homepage to an innerpage the ranking of this page will improve significantly and go back as soon as I remove the link. Tested 100 times.

    Yes, It passes link juice to your internal links as well because i see an increase in rankings when i have the related posts at the bottom of the article and when i remove it, there are some changes in the following days...
