Previous Entry Share Next Entry

What if you want to link to a website for the purposes of discussion, but you don’t want to thereby boost the Google rank of the site? Add the no follow tag to the link. Google, MSN, and Yahoo have all announced that they will respect the tag, and won’t allow the link to boost the ranking of the linked site.

And a lot of blogging software will automatically add rel=nofollow to links posted in comments. It hurts legitimate sites, but it takes the incentive to comment-spam away.
