If I don't link to a page on my site from my homepage is that bad?

    Say I have a website that I want to remain quality and provide good content to its viewers. But at the same time I want to add pages to the website with keywords and get the pages indexed. If I were to create 100 pages lets say all with uniquely spun articles with nice keywords, but the articles are BS, have typos, grammatical errors, and would make me look stupid if seen by site visitors. So if I just created the pages, but didn't link to them anywhere in my homepage or anywhere on my site so that visitors can't manually get there unless they typed in the URL, does that 1) Decrease the chances of those individual pages getting indexed, 2) Effect the link juice / PR of those individual pages in any way?

    1.) Yes it decreases the chances
    2.) If the pages aren't linked to anywhere from your site, Google will never find them...

    Personally, if it's your money site I wouldn't suggest using crap content. Anyways, if a user types some longtail and makes it to one of those pages, they're going to see the crap content and close the page...

    1) Wrong
    2) Wrong

    1) Content gets found and indexed at some point. Unless your domain is really spammy it might not get indexed, if its just a healthy domain it of course will get indexed at some point.

    2) Not linking to your page from homepage just affects the authority of your page, ie no pagerank floating from homepage to that certain page. Anyway arent you linking trough a category page or something?
