SEO Tip of the Day: Link Juice Dilution

When estimating the value of an inbound link to your site, one important thing to consider is the number of links on the page that will link to you. If the page where you will get the link has 5 links on it, each individual link passes about 1/5 of the total link juice from that page. If you are getting a link from a page with 100 links on it, you will receive about 1/100th of the link juice from your link. So, typically it is better to get a link from a page with fewer links on it because the link juice is less diluted.
