Something goes wrong here, but I can't tell exactly what:
I have a page with 2700 links on it (all of them are places of different continents around the world) So 2700 links on one page.
This is obviously not going to work well for SEO purposes.
Therefore, we want to divide those links into 3 pages (the give each link more linkjuice and improve the user experience). Now, in this new situation, every page we got has about 900 links (is still too much, I know, but this is just an example to illustrate the point).
My question is actually about how the Pagerank flows to the site.
When we got 2700 links on page A, and the pagerank on this page is 100%, each link should receive 0,03703 linkjuice (100 divided by 2700 links).
When we got 3 links (in this example, only 3 links to other pages on page A, instead of 2700), the amount of juice that each link receives is much larger: 33,3333 is the exact amount of linkjuice, per link (100 divided by 3 links)
But! We still have 2700 links to split, because we want to present all our content to users, off course. We don't want to left something out, but we do want to structure things in a better way.
So, when we have 3 pages and 2700 links to spread, we divide 2700 with 3, that will be 900 links per page (still too much, I know).
But here is the strange thing. When we have 90 percent of our pagerank left (because a certain amount of PR gets lost through each link hop), we divide 90 into 3 different pages: 30% value per page, but every amount of linkjuice stays exactly the same. (call me dumb but I don't see it here).
To do the calculation: 30% value per page, 900 links per page is: 0,03333 juice per link.
So, dispite of my strategy, my seperations are clearly not giving each link more linkjuice/more value.
My question is: what am I doing wrong here?
Many thanks.

Paying ANY attention AT ALL to PageRank is what you are doing wrong.

All right, thanks, I'll just focus on the usability then, and maybe some other signals that plays a roll.
