Promoting orphan pages on high authority sites

 4:06 pm on Sep 23, 2011 (gmt 0)

Some orphan pages on authority sites (Reuters) link to us. I tossed some PR juice from my site to those pages. I am not sure how useful this might turn out considering the power of the domain names such as Reuters or Yahoo news.

Has anyone had any luck and how will Google see this? I wanted to study this as I believe this link loop could add some trust rank to our site.

This can sometimes be helpful I've found, but not always - mostly, I think, because it is a kind of reciprocal linking.

Can you explain more about how these are orphan pages? In my experience, sites such as Reuters or Yahoo News do not publish pages without linking to them.

I know there is no use PRwise but exchanging links with Reuters is a signal of trust :)

Reuters and Yahoo syndicate press releases from trusted sources but they stop linking to them after a while when the news become stale. Thus orphan pages float in space without use.
