Internal link juice flow


- Page 1 links to page 2 & 3

- Page 2 links to page 1 & 3

- Page 3 links to page 1 & 3.

1)Is that useful for internal link juice flow?

2)Is that white hat tactics or it`s against Google TOS?

3)Will it affect Page 1, 2, 3 SEO positive or negative way?

  • Alan Bleiweiss: Link juice flow? That is a tragic path of wasted energy to attempt to manipulate.
  • Steve Gerencser: Adding to what alan said, why would page 3 link to itself in step 3? Is your intention to create a spider trap? As with you other post, you are asking the wrong questions. Chasing the algorithm always leads to failure at some point.
  • Steve Wiideman: 1. If Page 1 is a priority page (what anchor text?) 2 Inbound links and outbound links are scrutinized, internal links not so much 3. Yes, despite the opinion of the status quo, my experiments show an increase in rankings when you increase the number of links and put thought into anchor text towards the most important pages
  • Jim Munro: I see that you cross-posted and received advice in that other place, Toka. :) I think you will be better off taking note of what`s been said in this thread even though it might not be what you want to hear. :)
  • Adam John Humphreys: Realistically you want an experience that`s giving the person to get to their content inside two clicks from anywhere for UX and crawling. Deep links aren`t a party favorite
