I do not know that much about do follow and no follow but I am sure that no follow must count for something.
David Leonhardt conducted a brief experiment to determine whether no-follow links really do get indexed.
NoFollow links still obviously count at Yahoo....
NoFollow links also appear to count at Google. Or perhaps some do and others don’t, depending on other factors Google might use to rate links from specific domains. However, we can be sure that Google does follow at least some NoFollow links.
After reviewing Mr. Leonhardt's experiment, do you agree with his assessment?
Why or why not?

I've been telling this for ages.
I have a few sites ranking very high for competitive search terms, just because they have wikipedia backlinks.
I added three links to wikipedia today and two were already removed.
They seem to be removing the links very quickly. Which leads me to believe that Google may be placing value on the links that don't get removed.
