    I'm getting ready to rebuild a lot of my sites using the information I have gathered here this year. Trying to get everything set up for my yearly New Year's Resolution to make tons of money and quit my job.

    I mostly build affiliate type sites with WP and link to CB affiliate items, adsense, ebay EPN and I've just started adding a few CPA offers.

    When adding links to affiliate products is it worth the trouble to add the nofollow attribute? One of the things I want to add on my rebuilds is the link*u*bator. Do you think the search engines care if I have a lot of "leaks" from my site?

    I think the nofollow attribute is worth the trouble. I believe it will stop your link juice from leaking to other sites. For the little amount of work it would take, I would go ahead with the idea.

    I believe "no follow" only applies to Google rankings, and does not affect your ranking in Yahoo and MSN, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong

    No follow matters for Yahoo, MSN, and Google

    trouble? what trouble? implementing nofollow is so simple. it's definitely worth your time IMO if you know what you're doing, but don't nofollow every single link on your page.
