    Do nofollow links from authority sites pass any link-juice at all? a couple sites that had a few of my best backlinks just recently included nofollow tags in their HTML code this month; trying to see what I should make of it.


    thanks in advance.

    While they dont pass on linkjuice as such
    They do help in getting higher Serp position

    Just be careful not to go over 20% nofollow as this seems to trigger something in google
    algo and you wil be penalized

    The % of nofollow links needed to make a campaign look natural depends on the niche. One of my sites is in a niche where people actually comment on nofollow blogs all the time because that's how they communicate, and 60-70% of their backlinks are blog comments. Google surely didn't penalize them.

    Reason I asked was because I recently came across 10 or so .Gov Contextual Posts (high pr) but they're all Nofollow ... So I was wondering if they would still be of some significance

    I feel no-follow links to do play some role in rankings, whether they carry link juice or play some other role in algorithm can't be known. I have tried out no-follow comment backlinking and seen increased performance in the SERP's afterwards. I believe no-follow links do have value, but they are also useful in terms of adding diversity.
