itís important to note that low quality pages on one part of a site can impact the overall ranking of that site.
I agree with you Mad, that is saying something. It says small sites made up entirely of big so-called "quality" pages may have an advantage; and it says if you have a big site with some pages that may be "thin" (because they do not need to be fat!), it could hurt you.
So here's my question:
Does it make sense for siteowners to evaluate each & every page in their site and make the determination as to whether the page will help in the Google algo evaluation, and if it will not help, does it make sense to do a "noindex, nofollow" on all those pages? and also, remove them from sitemap.xml and outright block them in robots.txt?
