How Does Google Treat Noindex, Nofollow Pages That Have Incoming Exter


Best Answer Michael Martinez , 23 June 2015 - 09:41 AM

Hi everyone. Along time reader, first time poster.

And even if Google assigns it some amount of PageRank, it can't flow any PR to other pages, because Google can't crawl it to see where it links (and even if it did, the nofollow would cut it off).
