An orphaned page does not have any incoming links. It exists at the "root" of the space, meaning that unless you know it exists, it isn't likely that you would come across it while navigating through the space. When you delete a parent page, the child pages become orphaned; to prevent this circumstance, delete the child pages before you delete a parent page, or move the child pages to another parent before you delete the parent page.
