    Hey guys,

    I would like to know what you think about 301 redirects.

    Take this simple example:

    1. You get a backlink pointing to website.com/URL-B
    2. website.com/URL-B redirect(301) to website.com/pageA

    Does the same "link juice" is passed to website.com/pageA as if it was a simple link directly to website.com/pageA?

    Based on the following article: http://searchengineland.com/google-pagerank-dilution-through-a-301-redirect-is-a-myth-149656, it seems that yes. No pagerank is lost through a 301 redirect.

    Take this 2nd example:

    In your opinion, does it count as 5 simple links pointing to website.com/pageA?

    Note that URL-B,URL-C,URL-D,URL-E,URL-F are simple urls used to only 301 redirect. No content is displayed on these page.

    Test for yourself. Don't just take anyone's word on this strategy. There are good uses and poor uses and you need to determine the best application and situation to use them in.

    It's actually not a strategy, just a simple technical question ;)
