    Been testing it on a site, just wondering what kind of links trigger that filter? What about nofollow seeing as that gets dropped from the equation. Pure crap ******** links?

    Even a site with 100% do-follow links are in top, so, the diversification in source and the anchor text distribution is the matter to keep you survive.

    I've seen sites ranking well with 50% no-follow. They could be doing it to mask their high pr links because certain tools limit the amount of links you can pull from your competitors.

    As far as filters go, most of the time it's over-optimization with anchor/on-page elements/using previously penalized networks.
