View Full Version : Internal links and PR
05-05-2004, 04:36 PM
I guess this is basic seo question but I don't seem to be able to figure it out, hope someone can help me :D
In a situation where PAGE A links with PAGE A, PAGE B, PAGE B and PAGE C
How is page A pR distributed? (without considering the (1-d) part of the formula)
A) 0.5 x PR to page B and 0.5 x PR to page C or,
B) 0.66 x PR to page B and 0.33 x PR to page C or
C) 0.25 x PR to page A and 0.5 x PR to page B and 0.25 x PR to page C

thats because its an old system ;-) Dont because of the depricated value of PR sinse austin channeling PR is no longer necessary IMHO as the immense boost that technique used to give you no longer applies. (Note to self archive articles, put notes on those no longer applicable)
A good rule of thumb in the new regime is follow the old standard, build your website as if you didnt know a search engine existed (ie for your user) including your navigation and let the Pr pass naturally where it needs to. Logically your navigation dictates whats important, so PR will get there anyways

Oops didnt answer your question, Pr distribution only applies to the first link that google encounters to a specific destination page so lets say you have page A with 100 weight points and it links to page b 9 times on the page and page c once
Page B and Page C will both get equal amounts of PR althought there is 9 links to one and only 1 link to the other. And yes I have tested this :o

Even better, in fact I'd rather concentrate on the content. Thnx boss.

There is no preferential among the various internal links within a page for passing PR is there? IE: Page A has links to b-z in that order. Therefor, pages b-z will receive equal PR correct? It doesn't matter what order the links are in or which links the spider comes across first as it goes through the code does it?

seo guy one question you missed out from the original post is whether page A linking to itself will pass some of the PR to itself, would like to know that too.

Because Google's main aim is for the end user experience at the end of the day they evaluate a page as a user would. Anything that is deemed to be important should sit at the top of the page and as far to the left as you can because that is where the human eye naturaly sits when presented with any text, that goes for links and keywords.
