I don't jump to Google blog, it seems like you are assuming things, and the purpose of this thread was sharing experience based on what Google said about the no follow tag.Quote:
This subject seems controversial and I would like to know more about your personal experience with internal no follow tag.
It doesn't mean that Google is wrong or right, I would like to hear about personal experience from the members of this community.
Is that bad?
To the point:
I've tested this in the past and am still quite sure that G passes "some" juice from those links, not PR wise, that I'm sure, but over time they'll help your SERPS.
That said, I tend to not worry about no follow. Life is easier if you just ignore it. :)
I believe all links have value. If I was doing linkbuilding, I wouldn't care if the links were dofollow or nofollow. First of all, you need balance to make it look natural, and second - it is likely that there is some benefit from all links. Now, just as a precaution, I use the system I mentioned earlier when doing external linking on my blog. I figure that if it has a benefit, that's great, and if it doesn't, I didn't waste more than a minute nofollowing my links. And, why are we only focusing on Google? Other search engines might have algorithms that factor in nofollow links, etc. We shouldn't put all of our eggs in one basket, nor should we be so quick to dismiss ideas.
