    Role of No-Follow Links in SERP ?

    WE all know that Relevant dofollow links passing good amount of PR and SERP juice.

    But lets discuss about NO-Follow links.
    Is they all have really worth if they are from relevant pages ?
    If they are from High PR pages ?


    IMO bing and yahoo not caring about nofollow attribute so i think they have worth, And also notice that if we creating link from relevant pages then they giving boost in SERP {not sure but this happen with me and they help me lot when i were targeting entertainment blog by posting comment in other entertainment blog and maximum is nofollow}

    So please post your comment .

    People say that nofollow means nofollow - but I'm not so sure. I haven't conducted any conclusive studies, but I think that ALL links have value, provided that they aren't spam or anything like that.

    First off, nofollow links help cover up your SEO efforts to Google, and you won't be considered suspicious.

    Second, I have seen nofollow links become dofollow, so you never know.

    Third, links that are nofollow can be picked up by bots and posted dofollow somewhere else - this happens constantly with Yahoo! Answers.

    Fourth, I suspect that sometimes value is passed even with nofollow links.
    If you get a link from Wikipedia, you better believe Google will love it - nofollow or not...

    Finally, I believe that all links are followed, even if they don't pass PR or value.

    Hopefully the nofollow links with provide some quality referral traffic when they are on relevant pages.

    The nofollow links don't give you any link juice. So the PR of the page won't matter.

    I believe that a lot of the confusion regarding nofollow links was the result in a flaw in the Google algorithm. The flaw was causing the algorithm to give credit for the anchor text even though no link juice was passed. The result was that many SEOs believed that the noflollow was giving them juice.

    I think that no-follow links are worth quite a bit,maybe not in terms of link juice,but after all you are making sites for users,Search engines dont read sites,users do,so if they get you a quality audience,they are worth

    The best way to tell if the no-follow links have any value is to check your stats for referral traffic.

    Hi,

    There are a few places that nofollow have value. I can think of two right off the top of my head. Yahoo Answers, Craigslist.

    It really is not that important that it is nofollow as long as you get traffic. Right?

    I also wonder why google is still tracking our links even though it was tagged no follow, maybe no follow links are still monitored by google for checking your web activities.
