    You can:

    1) Look at the source code to see if the links have rel="nofollow"
    2) Right click on a link and check properties - most browsers will list something like relation: nofollow for nofollow links.
    3) Install the NoD0Follow add on for Firefox, which will highlight nofollow links
    Code:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/nod0follow/
    
    (change the "0" in the nod0follow to a "o", the board won't let me post the proper url).

    I installed the firefox add on. But I can't understand how to use it. Eg. If I open a site in my browser how it will show me it is no do follow? I can't understand where it highlights or color codes the link. Can anybody help me in this?

    Select Tools > NoD0follow to turn it on or off. When it's turned on, regular links are highlighted blue, and nofollow links are highlighted pink.

    i like this one because there is a little button to hit when you want to see do follow.

    A thing to remember is that nofollow can be set from a meta tag in the head section as well and also in robots.txt.

    This way the links themselves may not appear nf but they can still be.

    Just search for a no-follow plugin and the name of your browser that you are using.

    How do you check whether if its a no follow or do follow with seo quake plugin?
    I clicked line through "no-follow" and "no index" but did not see anything.

    A lot of ppl don't realize this, but I'm sure alot of BHW, (BMF's do) Spiders actually
    crawl No-Follow links back to your site. True enough the link does not pass-on page
    rank, but is followed none the less. A No-follow link not only makes your site appear
    more natural but also is worth more than a Do-Follow with a PR of 0 or n/a !!

    I use SEO for firefox extension or sometime look at source code to make 100% sure. I heard some authorities in IM talking that google don't look at nofollow tag if it thinks that this site is authority in particular niche or in overall!
