    So it looks like Squidoo will now be giving all outbound links the 'NOFOLLOW' markup... You can read the original article here: http://goo.gl/BxzKS
    Or, just read it below...

    I expected this. Squidoo has been getting larger for quite some time, and they want to clean up their website (keep the webutation strong). Therefore, they are taking active steps to keep the "blackhatters" and spammers away. Even so, the NOFOLLOW still gets recognized as a backlink ... just not one with any juice. Even so, if the lens is worthwhile, it can still funnel traffic to the desired page(s).

    Why bother, your len is PR and pass no link juice to your site unless you
    build up your lens through back links which also made Squidoo stronger
    than you in every niche you compete with them.

    Oh that is a very sad news for marketers were looking to get high quality do-follow links pointing towards their website. Seems like another good resource of getting backlinks has been finished.

    Thanks for the info..

    But I bet squidoo is still great to test the market before creating any real site.
