The No Follow tag. Can it be beneficial?
Google has been saying for sometime now that no follow tags do not pass pagerank or link juice. I understand What Google is claiming however I must say that this does not say they will not index the links and give them value. The links are listed as valid links in webmaster tools and after seeing some tests it does appear that they do carry some value. By sticking to the claim Google is definately cutting down on blog and forum spam so if they were to let the cat out of the bag so to speak the internet would begin to have more of this type of spam again and I do understand the logic. However I cannot say that I have ever heard Google claim that these types of links do not have some value.. What are your thoughts?
