    Is there any reason behind this? i thought nofollow didnt pass on much link juice. Why is majestic seo saying they are my best links?

    I used to be a big believer in no-follow vs do-follow.

    Now Im not so sure!

    I would take a PR6 (no-follow) over a PR4 (do-follow) any day!

    So When Majestic says they are the "Best Backlinks" what does it mean then if they are not?

    The reason is simple. MajesticSEO rank your backlinks based on the ACRANK of the page were the link is coming from. The nofollow/follow attribute is not found within the formula of ACRANK and they only take into consideration the total number of links.

    ACRANK of a page = Only based on inbound link (with their respective ACRANK) to that particular page.

    MajesticSEO is not Google. They dont care about Nofollow link. They will tell you how many of your links are nofollow but they wont go any further. You have to do the analysis yourself.
