    Hi we all made a lot of back links.

    My question is:

    If a back links is not indexed in Google, will it pass any link juice to target website?

    what is your opinion on this?

    My opinion is:

    It will not pass any link juice and it is no useful unless it get indexed in Google.

    If a link isnt indexed, it means the page containing the link isnt indexed. So if the page isnt indexed than the link doesnt exit actually. But, fact is that if you block a webpage with 'no-index' or 'robots.txt' in order to prevent google from indexing it, they will follow the outbound links of it in order to verify that the linked pages are not tagged as 'no-index' too or something. So, google will follow links of non indexed pages in order to find more info, but the juice wont pass. Matt cutts said that.onxe in one of his interviews. If i'll find it, i'll attach it.

    It is possible the page gets crawled but not indexed so google will have seen the link.
    Most likely carries a lot less weight than a page that is actually indexed though.
