    So I scraped a list of blogs, noticed I Got some good High PR comments. But, that 99.9% of the sites are nofollow. What effect does no follow have, does it not benefit serp rankings, or does it not benefit pr ?

    According to most people, nofollow means the links do not pass along the PR linkjuice a ******** does.

    Many people debate their usefulness but in my opinion they are a vital part of natural linkbuilding (how unnatural does 100% ******** look?) even though they may not help your site to rank as much as a ******** link!

    No-Follow links won't pass PR juice but they have proven to be helpful in SERPs (at least for me).

    Link to both.

    d0f0ll0w are backlinks that get indexed, but don't make the mistake thinking those are the only ones you need.

    If you only have d0f0ll0w now, google sees that as unnatural.

    Don't focus so much on whether or not the links follow back now. Diversify the types of links you use. Vary the PR of sites you link to. Usually keep the backlinks with low OBL...but it isn't a horrible idea to throw in some links to a few high OBL just for the sake of diversity (make sure the site isn't blacklisted for anything).

    All the backlink changes are getting to be pretty obnoxious and are rewarding "smart" spam like never before.

    Don't worry if it's do/no follow or the PR, just get backlinks from good and wide-ranging sources, make your site look popular and as long as people are searching on the subject, you'll eventually get good placement and traffic.

    As LakeForest mentioned, diversify. Diversify your sources, anchor text, pages you're linking to, etc.

    Yep. Both types of links have their place and use in an effective SEO strategy. It's all about how you use them.
