    Actually nofollow links are help to maintain the stability. It helps to show that "your links are built naturally". Some people recommend to have 25% nofollow on your overall backlinks. But, it's also better if have upto 50%.

    They definitely can, in my opinion anyway.

    Most links are helpful, even if they are of the "no follow" variety. The only exception with this is profile links, while they do act as a bit of "link juice", it can be very hard to get the actual profile pages indexed by Google.

    The key is building links steadily over time, having a good mix of "do follow" and "no follow" links, and of course having proper variety within your anchor texts.

    I use a variety of links, many of them being no follow wiki links to get my pages and media ranked. This works great for ranking video, you can shoot out tons of wiki links to a video, Google will drop the video for a while, then it will bounce right to the top.

    This usually lets me rank most of my videos for low competition words in 1-2 weeks time.

      Where did you come up with that crap? Google has stated on average about 2-3% of the links they crawl are nofollow. 2-3%. Not 25%. Definitely not 50%.

        You misunderstood with my words. Actually, here the discussion is not about the google crawl. I said to have 25% of nofollow when building backlinks. Most of the social signals are nofollow. Still, you need to have social signals to gain authority and ranking.

          I wasn't talking about Google crawl either.

          You are completely wrong. Social signals do not do squat for rankings.

          Also, show me all these websites with 25% nofollow links.

          Less than 5% nofollow links is much more normal. Even then, there is no reason to target any special percentage of nofollow links.

    MyWikiBiz.com allows you to use the wiki to promote your business and yourself, if my memory serves me. They encourage it, I think.

    Yeah these are better for your SERP ranking in google. Do try to use wiki links for your main site and also make wiki links for your tier 2 links that are two good for sites...

    Well, I would use Wiki link because I think I should use as many methods of link building as I can so it would make my link profile natural.

    A no-follow link does not pass link juice but it contributes in increasing your site’s traffic. It is also important to note that a good backlinking technique means creating links, i.e., from wiki sites with a mix of do-follow and no-follow. Having only do-follow or only no-follow will make your site looks suspicious to Google and may lead to penalty.
