After watching this video [Should I use the nofollow attribute on internal links?] and others, I have a doubt.
Since noindex-tagged pages have a pagerank (or value, since pagerank does not exist anymore) of zero, I would like to ask (and comment) if wouldn't be advisable to put a nofollow tag in every link pointing to them in a site.
I have a folder with many general information, legal and privacy files, with more content than the rest of whole site, although useless content since it has nothing to do with its topics, so I decided to tag them noindex, as it is usual in so many sites out there.
The problem is that there are many links in the thematic pages pointing to those other worthless parts, and considering that the noindex-tagged pages do not sent any value through their links, since they are not indexed, I am thinking that perhaps the value sent to them from the indexed, valuable pages is actually being wasted someway.
Maybe I am wrong, but I think that Mr. Cutts is talking about fully indexed sites, including the log-in pages.
I would really appreciate some comments on all this.
