    Trying to figure out No-follows

    I don't understand what it is a good thing to put no-follows on internal links. Is there and good article out there to read?

    There are probably about 13,900,000 of them.

    For me, I just use the rule of thumb... is it something that would add value to the index? In other words, if the page comes up for the term would a visitors click increase my sales... or my bounce rate. (smiley here)

    I always nofollow contact, terms of service, paginated results, terms of service, privacy policy, etc...

    nofollow lets you control the leak of PR juice to other sites that you link to.

    there are lots of threads about that so might as well look for that instead also.

    Comments on this post

    • JagNet : (0) we're talking about nofollowing internal links here, not links out to other sites.
    • JJMcClure : nofollow tells Google to ignore the link, your reasons for wanting that could be anything, not just controlling PR flow.
