    G00gle and m@tt cutts went on a rampage with no follow, now it seems over half the internet is no followed, so what happens to googles ranking algos if this becomes true? Has g00gle shot itself in the foot somewhat?

    It'd be great if everything was nofollow, because then it would be meaningless :)

    They just recently changed it, if you have nofollow links on your page the link wont get your PR, but your page WILL give up PR for having the link

    Are you talking about how it is supposed to 'evaporate'? I tested this and it's untrue -just more bs from m@tt cutts

    Matt Cutts has been quoted as saying that the majority of websites on the internet do not use the NoFollow tag. This is true from my experience.

    But the majority might not let us drop links?

    Google just wants to return the best search results possible. I think it is only a matter of time until Google completely ignores web 2.0 sites. No-Follow will grow... especially on Boomarking sites. Anything that we can easily build and add links to will fall to the wayside. We may actually have to start building real websites with valuable original content. There will always be Do-Follow if you build the site.

    i agree and disagree with your post. first, i agree that goggle wants to return the best results because they want the surfer to get to what they are looking for as fast as they can so they can sell targeted advertising before the user gets distracted.

    i dont think the bm sites will become no follow, but i do think goggle will adjust their alg to not give as much juice to the bm sites in the future.

    personally, i see goggle placing more weight on user feedback, but i still dont know how the se's will determine between a real user and bots.

    i wouldnt be surprised that if in the future, in order to become a trusted site/user, goggle will have to verify you directly

    I don't think this will ever happen, but even if it did, it doesn't really matter in the end because Google still ranks AND gives authority to tons of sites that have nofollow links for great. Look at Digg and StumbleUpon are no follow, yet Google loves those sites and gives consistent 1st page rankings for both those sites and many more.

    I disagree with Google ignoring Webs 2.0 sites.Google loves new content and user submitted content, and the only places to get this Web 2.0 sites. Google loves Web 2.0 sites. Their spiders literally live on these places. That is why it's so easy to grab attention from Google and get good rankings with web 2.0 properties.
