Does anyone with a LOT of noindex pages see any negative effects from having them?
I do wated to raise this for a long time and it is great that that brought it up. Yes, I do have a feeling that Google basically has brought about a change to pages tagged "noindex, follow" or just "noindex" My understanding is they just don't pass on PR from such pages as opposed to how that meta directive should actually work. But their logic could be that if you don't want us to show those pages in our index, we would also ignore any link juice flowing through or out of those pages via internal or external links.
But more data points from other folks would help.
