    Hey Guys,

    I have like 250+ links on my home page (seomoz triggers this as bad), roughly 100 of them link to pages that provide no value in regards to my seo strategy. If I use rel=nofollow for these internal links is that ok? Why do I keep reading that this is bad? Wont this provide more authority and link juice to pages that I'm looking to optimize?-

    -Will

    If you're linking to something within your domain you do not want to use nofollow.

    Now, if you're linking to external websites you can use nofollow it will no pass any juice to them.

    I must also add that having 250+ links on the homepage is quite a lot, look at how social bookmarking sites do it I'm sure you can find the right answer.

    now a days, people are keeping rel=nofollow on their blogs to get rid of spamming AND as far as SEO is concerned you need perfect amount of ******** and nofollow links. Hope this helps.
