    My homepage got lets say 400 products listing.

    But I only want the latest 100 product to be ******** and the old 300 products to be nofollow, does it means that the link juice is spread to the 100 only or the link juice is actually lost. I read about the new google nofollow policy, but unsure in details.

    anyone can explain if nofollow on the 300 products that I deem not useful is proper way if I want prioritise on my latest 100 products.

    Thanks.

    It'll be spread to only those 100 products if you nofollow the rest.

    There some article in the Internet, I am unsure if its true, they say at year 2013 or so, matt cutt mention something like if you nofollow the page, it will just discount it off, but not improve the rest of the 100 products, this kind of myth, I am unsure thou.

    Simple math: total link juice = 1, you have 10 links on page, 4 of them are nofollow'ed, and still, each link is getting 0.1 juice and 'nofollow' tells google to don't pass that juice to these links.
    In other words, every link of 10 we have on page is getting 0.1, and nofollow just tells google to don't pass the juice and that doesn't mean that other links are getting more. Hope this helps.

    Google covered this topic several times in the past..
