    Is my logic correct?
    If I make all of the links on my site no-follow, then the link juice sent to the homepage will stay on the homepage and it will rank better?

    You NEED to have a fair proportion of no follow links simply to look natural. That said TO SPITE what Google may officially say I am still a firm believer that if a link is of high authority that it DOES NOT REALLY MATTER than it is no follow. I personally have noticed that no follow seems to mute low authority links' value, but if the link is high quality it still seems to rock pretty hard. So don't shy away from AAA links because they are no follow.

    I think Poker Rakeback Mafia referred to some kind of extreme PageRank sculpting. The idea of PR sculpting has been to drive all you link juice to the pages you want or need your link power. So, the idea is – if I got it right – to prevent Google from sending link juice to your subpages, so that all your juice stays on your homepage.

    IMHO this idea is flawed. First, nofollow is just a hint for Google. It won't stop Google from indexing your subpages and thus they will get some kind of link juice. Additionally the notion, that outgoing links cost you link juice dates back to a Google paper published in 1996. I strongly believe that Google never did this in practice. Sites with a lot of outgoing links should have seen a severe ranking hit, but I remember that e.g. Yahoo, a site with a lot of outgoing links then, did very well in Google.

    I think you read this wrong.

    He wants to know when he sent link juice to his homepage (mydomain.com) and use now nofollow to his inner pages if the link juice stays on homepage.

    The answer is if im correct:
    You will always have 100% on your homepage (if you sent link juice to your homepage) and when you use interlinking the link juice is divived by the number of inter linkings.

    what you are talking about is called page rank sculpting and it's an out of date Concept. Just minimize your outbound links, don't try and do anything else

    I think Do-follow is also required.

    Why pagerank sculpting is out of date concept?

    Hi OP,

    Your logic is correct.
    But I wonder why do you want to do it.
    You should get your backlinks by link diversity method.
