    I have a website with the All In One SEO plugin installed and this is currently set to no index category pages by adding the following meta tag onto the category pages:

    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow" />
    I have this set as with many websites the category pages do not add any real value to the website (due to duplicate content and the fact i don't want these pages ranking for anything) HOWEVER are very valueable to the user experience. In my menu are 10 categories which then each show the posts (about 10 in each) that i am ranking.

    So my question is IF i build links to my homepage for example, that the juice will then flow through my category pages and reach the posts within?

    Or another way is when i backlink my inner posts, will the juice then be circulated through the categories and then to other internal posts?

    My fear is that the juice is not flowing past these pages and that the juice that "would" have flowed through is now just lost/discounted....

    Your thoughts and experience on this would really help me push forward!
