The site is coded nofollow, can benefit our SEO effort?
What? I don't understand what your saying? Can you please elaborate? What site? Do you mean sites that you link to are no follow and therefore it doesn't benefit SEO efforts?
I mean, if I do blog comments to the site with no follow, it will increase ranking? or link juice?
In my opinion, nofollow is more powerful and more natural.
Webmasters believe they need to get only do follow links to rank. That is wrong. I have several websites that are ranking in the top 3 just from Youtube videos description backlinks alone, and they are nofollow.
Matt is telling webmasters that nofollow has no value and passes no link juice. That is a load of crap. Nofollow backlinks does pass value and count. Whether it passes link juice or not, is to be determined. If it does, it is extremely minimal.
Matt has never been truthful about seo, he's always double talking. Tells webmasters one thing, to turn around and target those same type of strategies that are considered to be "acceptable".
I personally think Google wants you to chase after do follow links, so it is easier to spot who is trying to influence the rankings. That is why I have always gone after a 75% nofollow/do follow 25% rate. It appears more natural.
To answer your question, yes, nofollow is worth the effort.
Someday, Google will make an update and that will target those do follow backlinks.
Get any links you can. I largely ignore whether a link is nofollow or not. That being said, if I know of a non-nofollowed link opportunity, I do indeed use it to its fullest potential.
doesn't really matter whether the link is no-follow or do-follow...get links with both...a link is a link...
With the advent of Penguin....diversity in your backlink portfolio is ever so important.
I agree with this, having both is important as one of the factors to looking natural.
Also I can say that I have both indexed and ranked sites with 100% NoFollow links at the start (I have a lot of bots that run just mediawiki which is nofollow and a number of MNS sites I used these exclusively for the first weeks to rank them) so I can say that they certainly do provide benefits.
IMO the nofollow attribute never stopped spam as intended and G probably just uses it as one factor in their algorithm to weigh the power that the backlink will provide to you. It seems, at least from my experience which is all anyone has as Google will never actually tell you, that other factors are more important than nofollow or ******** including:
authority of the site and page the link is on
having and varying anchor text
contextual link (slap it in an article)
OBLs on the page
When I look at my backlinks in google's webmaster tools, nofollow links are not showing up. What I know for sure, nofollow links will not cause any harm to your site but I doubt those links will increase your SERP. My site has over 100 PR3-7 nofollow links, if they would do any good, I should already rank on first page for my niche's keywords.
Look dude Google love a link building campaigning which has variety of links. No follow is one of them. If you only have a lot of do follow links then it can be harmful for your site in the long run. And By doing blog commenting you can get a lot of visitors and your site can be popular. So they are mandatory for a site.
No follow links actually do provide some form of link benefit. They can provide great referral traffic from people clicking through your links. An excellent example of useful no follow links are blog comment links. Blog comment on a popular blog can deliver hundreds of visitors in a very short space of time.
You need a combination of both to make your links look natural. Don't just hunt for do-follows, mix them up.

I think you guys are right but it just confuse you when google web master tools does not show nofollow links for your site. I'll need to upload a video to youtube anyway, I'll of course add my site link in comments. Is there a difference in SERP if you have more than one video with your site link?
Yes, there is. I have 100's of videos, and I put my links in every description.
I put links to my homepage, the inner page where the video is found (I embed my videos on my site too), facebook fan page and twitter page.
You mean if the site is a Nofollow site, can you still have a SEO benefit on it? I guess, Daddy G. still crawls nofollow links but the robot won't give enough authority to that certain link. Meaning, if you mix nofollow and ******** backlinks into your site, it still worth it because G. might think that you are building backlinks naturally.
I go by this rule:
If it's easy, get a no follow.
If it's hard, get a do follow.
In other words, easy to get no follow links should be included, if they're even just a little hard to get, use the effort for quality do follow links.
You know what the best use of no-follows are? If your website has great SEO juice already, any external links from other websites that you are linking out to from your own website, always make sure those are no-follows. Why? Because then you absorb all of the link juice and will not share the juice.
Original. I said that.
Try to use links both,
I'm sure it will help your blog
