    lets say i have a page with link pointing to it.

    but the page itself is unindexed. example 404 page or contact page whatever or deprecated page.

    Does link juice flow through links on it?

    i mean if I link one article from 404 pages, which are unindexed, but have links pointing to them unfortunately, will the link juice pass?

    the key thing here is that they are forced to noindex

    If by 404 pages you mean previous pages that had content and then changed ownership and went offline, you just described why PBN links work. If you actually mean 404 error pages, then no.

    Oh ok. What about any other pages that are set to noindex but they receive links?

    but pbn homepages itself are strong... and people do 404 to 301 or do same urls as before eventually.

    I mean if noindex pages that are there, but they are noindex, flow link juice. Not pages that are offline.

    No: I believe Google treats these the same as ref=no-follow links.

    It's pages in the index that passes link juice. Noindex pages are not gonna be in the index and therefore do not pass juice. They're not in the picture.

    https://www.stonetemple.com/eric-enge-interviews-googles-matt-cutts/ That article is ten years old, and is talking about PageRank. It's a little outdated.

    But no, a page that is not indexed, does not pages juice.

    If they did, I would register all the deindexed pbn's and power that shit to my MS's today lol.

    Doesn't matter
    1) No index pages do not pass link juice
    2) You need to stop creating a thread for each and everything

    But you aren't exactly learning anything for yourself. You are not absorbing the context of why things happen like this by just asking, and not doing your own reading up on the topics. Most of the time you could punch this into google or bhw search bar and find your answer.

    No problem, another way to think about it aswel: If google doesn't think this content is suitable to be indexed, what makes you think they are going to let the page pass juice on?

    When you put a noindex tag that tell the engines not to index, it do not tell them not to read what is written there. Which means they do see the links but do not retain in their index. So what, does it pass link juice, logically it should not. Why not try it out yourself, give a bunch of such links to a not very consequent money site and see what happens :D

    You better trust Matt Cutts on this one. He's the one guiding everyone to true SEO, because his company does not want you to buy ads, they want you to rank for free.

    I have no answer for the question, but just a food for thought - For example, it's a common practice to set category pages on aff sites as noindex, yet, many of them have structure - domain.com/category/innerpage. Sure, there's more interlinking going on, but wouldn't this be a huge throttle, if the juice would not pass through that "category" page? The juice would pass from inner page via interlink to homepage and vice versa, but not through the category page itself? Wouldn't that be weird?

    I have one thing to test on my "to do" list, but can't seem to find time. It involves expired domains. Many people here hate 301 redirect of former inner pages to homepage, consider it weak 302, etc, I am not here to argue that. Would the link juice get passed, if you rebuilt the inner URLs without the original content, kept main menu and sidebar on and only put "Content not found" etc on every page and set it to noindex?

    I have a fever running, so this might be a bullshit, but as I said, food for thought.
