    Hello,

    I want your opinion guys; what is the best way to link to spamy websites that Google hates?

    Is no-follow just fine? Or should I link to a webpage on my website that does the redirection?

    Thanks :cool:

    Well, nofollow supposedly means you aren't voting for it (in Google's eyes). If you do redirection, then it's best to have it in a "subfolder" (real or "virtual", e.g. mysite.com/links/01 might redirect to the spammy site and there's a deny for /links/ in robots.txt) that GoogleBot is blocked from by robots.txt. You could do a combination of nofollow and redirect.

    I would just nofollow. Then again, I wouldn't purposefully link to a spammy website with a money site.
