These type of pages serves no useful purpose as they are present on the website but no other page provides link back to these. As such, no link juice passes on to these pages.

Example A typical example of an Orphan page is given below:-

www.seosandwitch.com/thispageisorphan.html

In the example above, if the page thispageisorphan.html receives no backlinks from any of the pages of seosandwitch.com , then the page would be termed as an “Orphan Page”. Remember this page would be present on the server, i.e if you open the url directly, it would get open and show its contents but you won’t be able to find this page from any other pages of the website as no link to this page would be provided from those pages.

*The url used is just for example purpose, no such page exists on the site.
