Definition: Link Equity

Also referred to as Link Juice, this is an informal measure of how much a link affects the rankings of a webpage on a search engine results page. Link Equity is also used when discussing redirecting one page to another, or the use of canonical links.

For example “setting Page A as the canonical link for these pages will transfer all their link equity to it” – meaning that Page A will get a boost on SERPs.
