  • Federico Sasso:

    At least Google occasionally does, especially if that would lead to an up-to-now unknown to them link.

  • Martino Mosna:

    They would store and crawl the URL, aye. They also usually do not account it as a part of the Link Graph.

  • Bill Hartzer:

    Yeah, they definitely crawl all URLs that they find. That doesn`t mean that PageRank is passed, though.

  • Andrei Gherghel:

    Bill Hartzer Well...even if it doesn`t pass pagerank which is getting less and less important, it increases the visibility and helps in building the authority.
