Because they want to... rel="nofollow" is a google idea.

I guess ask.com think the same as i do.
If you don't want a link to be followed don't put it on your page.
If you don't want user posted links to be followed don't allow users to post links.

I agree. If you are linking with the site having no follow tag then it is useless. You are not going to step ahead in link building but you will be wasting your time.

This is the dumbest thing I've seen anyone say here in a while.
If you're link building, YOU don't add the attribute to your tag. It's added automatically by the site you post to.

As for the OP, like meman said, it's Google's idea and Ask aren't going to be influenced by them if they can help it. I for one think it's a good idea - props to Ozzu and BWM for using it.

search engines will index no follow links but they will not consider them while evaluating the backlinks for PR

Great post.

It can be true that if links are useless for your then why you are putting them to your sites.

Thanks :)

As others said, nofollow is a google initiative. I still suspect that google passes some minimal PR juice from nofollow links :)


Hi,

No.. I don't think so because once I watch one Google representative Matt Cutt's video and he clearly said that Google doesn't pass PR juice from no-follow links.

I think Google is the only search engine that is sensitive to that kind of attribute. You have to remove it to make your site do-follow.


yep, but I think it's little bit useful to prevent spam because people whose aim is just to get backlinks avoid to make comment on nofollow blogs or forums.
