    I was looking at the source of one of my links on an article I posted on articlesbase and noticed the nofollow tag. It appears this is a new thing with the changes they make this week.

    I am not sure if that is just for the page tracker or if that is making my link nofollow. This is not only on the articles on their site but also goes with articles that get syndicated. I posted the code below. Does this mean my links are all nofollow and I should stop using articlesbase or does it only apply to their javascript?


    <a rel="nofollow" onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outgoing/article_exit_link');" href="http://mydomain.com/">my anchor text</a>

    nofollow refers to the mydomain.com. The javascript has nothing to do with. So its a nofollowlink I think...

    In that case Articlesbase is now pointless to post articles to as far as getting backlinks and helping seo on my own domain?

    Maybe they have some rules that says an article must have minimum 500 words to get a follow-link or something. I think I have read here at bhw that one site is using such rule. Maybe this article directory too...

    before you start dismissing nofollow links take a look at this:

    Code:

    would be interesting to get an updated version of this though for current practices and clarification

    Hello Friend.
    In seo, do follow and nofollow both are beneficial. Only do follow is not important for SERP and Ranking. It can enhance your SERP and traffic both lol...
    Thanks

    Article Base has been no-follow for a while now, at least a few months. Scum... Ezine, Goarticles, Articledashboard, and Buzzle are the only sites I bother with now...oh and Hubpages and Squidoo, but they arn't really article directories.
