    I dont get why people submit sites to scuttle submiters, yes it posts your
    link to multiple sites but that link is NOFOLLOW so no link juice at all...

    Can anybody explain me some advantages of "scuttling" ??

    nofollow isn't always a bad thing, just like linking to PR0's isn't always a bad thing either (too many high pr backlinks and google thinks you're buying links).
    A lot of my no-follow links get traffic to my site, so regardless of pr juice, I get my traffic which is honestly all i care about most of the time really. Half my domains are throwaways :D

    Lets sum it up:

    Scuttle by default = nofollow
    Scuttle Plus by default =?
    Pligg by default =?

    Who has some information about that?

    I used one of these 150 scuttle websites and it did create the 150 links.
    I have not received one single visitor and I guess they are all no-follow as I have not seen a single backlink ;)

    Waste of time imho

    ok, thanks for the information, but how about scuttle plus and pligg sites? If they are by default ********, I just need a good sitelist and will get backlinks...?

    Nofollow gives you no juice but it helps you in ranking the SERPS, i have tested this and i am sure that nofolow helps you with your ranking, besides that Google isnt the only search engine around, i get some nice amount of traffic from Yahoo and they don't give a fuck about nofollow.

    There are benefits in addition to link juice:

    - Getting your blog / site indexed. Nofollow doesn't mean a robot will not follow the link. It just doesn't pass PR.

    - Link juice / PR is only a Google thing. They're not the only source of traffic.

    - You may get some traffic from the link.

    - In my experience, there still seems to be some benefit. I'm not sure Google always follows their nofollow rules.
