From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  juice
   n.
  
      The weight of a given node in some sort of graph (like a web of trust or a
      relevance-weighted search query). This appears to have been generalized
      from google juice, but may derive from black urban slang for power or a
      respect. Example: ?I signed your key, but I really don't have the juice to
      be authoritative.?
