    The SEO word 'link juice' refers towards the engine 'trust' (i.e. credibility) and/or post rank conveyed by a link from one website to another. An internet site with high 'trust' or post rank provides additional link juice than a single that doesn't.

    For example, a link from a popular Wikipedia article provides additional link juice than a link from a new site. Why? Mainly because Wikipedia has a whole lot of trust and high pagerank inside look for engines (especially Google).

    In SEO, the aim is to secure inbound contextual links from external websites that have established search engine Trust and high pagerank. This transfers some of that trust and pagerank to the internet site getting linked to.

    Any backlinks to a site is a link juice. The quality of juice is categories to authority link, do follow link and no follow link. The process of building links, we call it as offpage SEO, it is important to SEO but not everything.

    Link Juice is how Google rates or ranks the quality, relevance, and popularity of your site. When a highly ranked site links to yours this is the essence of the juice, the more quality backlinks you have the more link juice you got. So it's not hard to surmise that you need to increase your good backlinks if you plan on increasing your Juice.

    Link juice is the currency of Google. In other words, it’s the secret sauce that allows you to beat your competitors for rankings in Google. Sure, there are some other factors that Google uses to calculate rankings (see Search Engine Optimization), but link juice is by far the most important aspect of dominating Google

    Hey KalvinMartin see link juice is not any kind of process its simply the distribution of PR for each link made on it.
    Yes you can say it the main part of SEO as link juice is very crucial part for ranking and increasing PR too.

    One of the most important things is getting your website to be among the first listed on search engine sites. If it shows up in the first page or two of Google or Yahoo, for instance, many more people are likely to visit your site. The term link juice is directly concerned in SEO, since this is the juice that will drive up your rankings and bring visitors to your websites.

    In my opinion, Link juice is process of a website that make visitors and others want to link to it. Pagerank can be passed one site to another through links.

    Its nothing but a vote credibility transfer to a page.

    Do-follow link attribute does this transfer from page A to page B. And nofollow link attribute controls and preventing transfer of this link credibility.

    Excessive do-follow links may lead to penalty as SE's may think that those are paid links.

    And in return, your website should not only secure inbound links / link juice but also outgoing. When you hoard too much inbound links - it is more like an overloaded link website and may (instead) affect your website rankings.

    Link juice is a very attractive part in the SEO and it refers to the power of inbound or 'incoming' links to your website. It is considered very important for the website in order to increase the rank of the site.

    Google pass the link juice while giving the page rank to the website. If you having the link from pr 5 website and it is quality website then you will get minimum page rank 3-4 from that high pr link. Note the link juice is completely depend upon quality of your website.

    Creating a large number of outbound links on a site is not considered favorable in Google. Site’s PR may decrease at any time resulting in the loss in link juice from the site. The more the quantity of relevant and quality inbound links helps in acquiring improved search rankings and better visibility.
