      It`s not what I`m looking for.

      I found and tested this. Maybe it will help someone in the future. If yes just hit "thanks"

      Put in header of Your website:

      HTML Code:
      <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>	
      <script type="text/javascript">
      google.load("jquery", "1");
      <script type="text/javascript">
      var anchor = $(this).text();
      var href = $(this).attr('rel');
      $(this).replaceWith('<a href="'+href+'">'+anchor+'</a>');

      Then when You dont want to give away Your PR Juice put links like this:

      HTML Code:
      <span class="ps" rel="">Youranchor</span>
      I`ve tested it and Google Bot sees it as a plain text insted of link

      It`s also usefull if Your building main menu for Your silo page

        What in the world are you talking about? If its your menu navigation you are not giving away your Pr juice you are conveying it to inner pages (and it degrades less within the same site) that belong to you. If the pages are not important to you then remove them.

    Hello zecke,

    it works! It creates plain text from link but how do you make it to not show anything at all?


    P.S.: I also need this for silo purposes
    Do you need kick in the SEPRs?

    You can use robots.txt for that. Just create a robots.txt file and write "Disallow: (the link)"
