How about links-to-self like on the home page or other major pages included in the "standard footer" installed on them all? Good, bad, ignored?
So what is this about multiple links on one page to the same other page? Did I miss that one somewhere? Assumed that it was perfectly fine that if I had two links to my own site and one to another on the same page, that I would get 2/3 blow-back and the other page = 1/3 (assuming all is otherwise equal and forgetting about the "location-and-other-factors" thing). Was there an official memo I missed on this?
Last I heard too, was that nofollow links (recommended by G in the same post as primarily for links to advertisers) sucked the SAME proportional amount of juice as other links. Seems ok and only perfectly fitting to me. It is the price one pays for selling (non-PR, nofollow, of course) links on your pages. PR juice therefore IS a consumable commodity.
One thing that bothers me is this "linking through sites/pages which are noindex" as being equivalent to nofollow. Has anyone actually successfully proven this works in practice?
