Maybe this has been covered but i could not find anything on it. I got an older site that I want to use to boost some pages on another website. Is a redirect gives more "juice" than a link to a page? I have the choice to do both.

hunh?

At most a redirect can only pass along the link pop a page that is going MIA has. It's a crutch, when one can't get the link pop directly to the true destination by changing the links pointing at that page. But you're still better off changing the links pointing to a page that's not going to exist anymore so that they point to the new destination.

I must be missing something in the question. Because it's always better to have links pointing directly at the true destination whenever possible. And a redirect is never going to add more link pop to the mix.

Thanks Randy, mainly the question was that I have a choice of doing a redirect or keeping the page to use it and just put a link. So I just wanted to know if one would pass more "juice" than the other? These are duplicate content pages. They are totally different pages.

If they're duplicates I'd 301. It's cleaner.

If not and if the other page provides good additional content I'd link.
