Link on a rel=canonical page

A question was asked of Google czar Matt Cutts asking if links on a page with rel=”canonical” on it can still pass link juice.  Great question.

The question was answered by Matt basically stating that “yes” but it will depend on PageRank (what doesn’t ;)  and the higher the PageRank – the better the chance the links will count.  So basically – it’s like any other link.

You can watch the video for yourself.  And to save you looking it up as I had to, the word “orthogonal” is defined by Websters as:

“having a matrix that is orthogonal: preserving length and distance”


“statistically independent”

Now enjoy the video. :)
