    Hi there all friends. I was reading many posts here about nofollow links so i decided to let you know about it. Well as far as i know and as far as i observed, It does not matter that you promote your web site to nofollow web sites or ******** web sites. I can prove it. The best example to prove it is yahoo answers. I have posted my web site link to many topics in yahoo answers. And when i logged in to my google.com/webmasters/sitemap account. i saw answers.yahoo.com's external links to my site. So if nofollow links are not usefull then it would not happen. All of us know that many pligg sites are nofollow but my webmasters account is also showing many many pligg links pointing to my site. So it is proved that it is not correct that nofollow links are useless. Sorry for my bad english :). Any comments would be appreciated.

    I'm sure they follow. Whether they offer as much link power?

    Not all search engines use the nofollow, maybe your link has been picked up by one search engine and indirectly followed by google. Personally I don't care if my links follow or not and just take the link. I see it as natural linking without the hassle. Maybe I'm way off the mark, maybe not.

    Sorry - this isn't true

    Just because it shows in google webmaster tools doesn't mean it carries any value.

    Nofollow links do not help with ranking in Google - there are are better tests which have shown this to be true. Having said that, getting thousands of links from blogs that only have 'follow' could well be a footprint by itself.

    They did tell the world - many times.

    Where have you been???

    More importantly, any SEO worth their salt always tests what google say, so when they said the nofollow prevented PR flowing I, and many others, tested it.

    Go read Matt Cutts blog and do a few tests yourself - there really isn't any doubt in this matter.

    Really don't know if they are any good or not but one thing that I observed today is that I created a new page on a new domain (never been used or bought before). Put a nofollow link up on another page of mine (pr0) with around 15-30 visitors per day. Now the new domain page is indexed.

    So conclude, I got my page indexed with just one nofollow link, I have done nothing else to that page, not submitted the url, no analytics installed, no adsense, nothing except that nofollow...

    What to make out of that? :)

    Nofollow links still act like any other link, there just no PR value gets transferred.

    What you should test is whether a page that has all backlinks of nofollow gets a PR increase, that should proof it once and for all
