    Just a (probably stupid) question about social signals. For example, sharing an link to an article on your website via twitter, facebook that are no follow links, how does the "social signals" work from this as the link is no follow?

    It doesn't matters if it's do-follow or no-follow it still has value. Also, google pays attention on social signals differently than other backlinks.
    With social signals it's important to have a lot of them, or to make them go viral...that will influence your rankings. A few of them here and there is not that significant :)

    I agree with Katona44...Wikipedia links have been for a long time no-follow and they still provide great value for link building...

    No follow links are somethings that need to be mixed up with do follow links. the more natural a backlink profile looks the better IMO.. also anchor veriety is very important.
