When to Use Nofollow

Posted in SEO by Tom on May 9th 2007

Linking to another website with a nofollow attribute is a sign of not trusting that site. If you have verified the link and you are putting it on your site, then you shouldn’t really put a nofollow on it.

And if you’re doing it because you think it will hide affiliate links from Google (who have been rumoured to punish sites with too many affiliate links), well it doesn’t hide them at all.
