Do you think if a link changes every time you refresh the page then it doesnt transfer link juice?

    My built in theme related posts feature is quite stupid and it shows different pages each time you refresh page. WTF lol.



    I did small experiment in the past and It seemed links that change every time you refresh page dont transfer link juice.


    However that was little different concept there.


    Or maybe I am in wrong? Anyone checked this thing?


    Note I mean internal link juice

    Change your plugin if you want permanent link juice or leave it as it is just for better user engagement. But yes, it definitely isn't good to have internal links changing everytime.

    What is probably happening here is that Google cannot crawl those links in the first place since the content is dynamic.

    Check the if the links are present on the cached version of the page:
    https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:yourdomain.com

    Are they?

    BTW... I would check other SEO aspects of the theme. Seems to be one of those fancy looking non-SEO friendly ones. It might be holding your overall rankings back.

    Nah the rest is okay. Headings are okay. meta tags and title is made by yoast. Its maybe high weight but I have cache plugins and cloudflare so speed is very okay.

    I'm not talking about caching of the files on your website.

    What I'm talking about is how Google sees your site. Cached version of the website will give you a good understanding of this (Google's cache, not your caching plugins)

    I'm sorry but we are not on the same page.

    I'm simply suggesting to check if the Google can crawl those dynamic internal links. That's it.

    It can but they change every time so they are kinda useless links in my assumption.

    I dont know. Is the last cached version the version google sees? That makes no sense for not cached pages.


    I have nearly 0 pages cached despite good links

    Hmm... interesting. We might have stumbled upon the true problem here.

    If there are visible on the cached version they should indeed pass juice. You can only ever see only last cached version. Here is a detailed guide on this btw:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/tutorial-how-to-be-100-sure-google-counts-your-backlinks.970750/

    It's strange Google doesn't cache your internal pages though.

    Are you sure there are even indexed? What does come up when you use the site search?

    Code:
    site:domain.com
    If your pages aren't even indexed there is no wonder they don not pass juice.

    What about those inner pages? Are they indexed? site: search showed them?

    I think we both mean different things.


    google is aware of a link since its in the index. But it doesnt transfer link juice immediately. Takes about a month or so.

    Thats case of external links.


    Its impossible for links that change every refresh to achieve this. The only difference here is that internal links work quicker than external.

    It takes time indeed.

    Googlebot visits your site -> sees the current links -> counts that to the equation and ranking decision

    If this happens too often Google doesn't have time to properly respond and reflect it on the SEPRs.

    But I think your inner pages aren't even indexed. That's why you're not getting any juice from internal links. (are they?)

    Anyway...

    My suggestion is to use a different, SEO friendly widget with fixed links. Or interlink from the content directly. Contextual links carry more weight anyway.

    they are indexed because I have them linked from homepage and not only from there. But yes you are right I will have to remove this feature and add something else even tho it looks very professional
