Despite being DO-FOLLOW Google does not seem to like my link. I have placed my link on a high PR forum, and checked with the FireFox add-on NoDoFollow that the link is really do follow, the Google Toolbar confirming the high PR of the URL.
I have checked my site with Advanced Link Manager, also known as part of the Advanced Web Ranking suite, but the link doesn't show up as valid banklink after weeks. What does this mean? I have th impression that much of commenting in blogs and forums is simply being ignored by SEs.

Wow this thread is still live...it is obviously a do follow link,so whats the whole fuzz about ?
I believe that is dofollow
Links can be made nofollow via the robots.txt file.
So view that file in your browser on the site where the link is placed i.e.
If you see something like:
In this case, any URLs starting with habaku will be nofollowCode:User-agent: * Disallow: /habaku
And if you are expecting PR juice to flow to your site, remember that it is diluted by the total links on the page.
Even nofollow links reduce the PR juice of a page. This is a fairly recent thing as I recall.
And then there could be an automatic block in place in the search engine algorithm for the flow of PR from some sites to others.
