    Will the external links at footer menu take away PR?


    Hi all,

    We are about add DMCA badge with link at our footer menu. Will this link take way Page rank? What if these links are follow or nofollow? What's Google been employing about sending link juice to external links these days?

    Thanks

    Are you seriously worried about a single outbound link?

    Yes to be honest, because it will be linked from all the pages. I just wanna confirm about Google's stand on outbound links.

    Just 'nofollow' it and not worry about it.

    The No-follow attribute only affects the destination link. You still lose the same amount of link juice from your site.

    If he nofollows the badge backlink it won't pass any juice along. There won't be any loss.
