Google juice is jargon for the ability or power of a website to turn up in Google searches. A website that commonly turns up as the first or second entry in a variety of searches — especially for keywords that are not part of the site's name — can be said to have a lot of Google juice. It is frequently used by bloggers and webmasters. Google's PageRank system plays a large role in ranking "hits" for a given search. It works by counting how many times a site has been linked to and by the "quality" of those links — namely how many times the site that is linking has been linked to. In this way, sites with high Google rankings (i.e., lots of "Google juice") can offer to "share" or "give" Google juice to a less popular site. A link from a site with less Google juice can also be helpful in this regard to a lesser degree: there is less juice to give. ...more on Wikipedia about "Google juice"
