301 Redirect vs Linking

PageRank Lost Through 301 Redirect vs Linking Myth Debunked!

Google just uploaded a video on their YouTube Webmaster channel on February 25th debunking the PageRank lost through 301 redirects and linking myth.

Many SEOs have been arguing how much link juice of PageRank is lost through a link or through 301 redirects.  Which method is better in order to save more PageRank.  Matt Cutts, head of Google’s web spam team, finally debunked this myth.
