What I know About Nofollow Tag – Shared Here

The nofollow tag is a consensual way (approved upon by major search engines and blog software developers) of embedding links or letting others post links on your website, often within blog comments, without you taking editorial responsibility for the landing page quality of the link.

Some misunderstand nofollow tag by believing that if, say Google bot, encounters one, it doesn’t follow the link to see where it’s pointing to. Others see in nofollow tagged links the way escape loosing PageRank.

Unfortunately for those guys, Google Changed How It Handles Nofollow, and apparently decided to let some link juice bypass the censorship.

This is inaccurate, because the search engine will follow the link but will not assign it with any authority or PageRank from your website, due to your attitude towards it – “I’m not recommending it” – manifested with the nofollow tag.

Whenever possible, include in the anchor text keywords that exist in the page’s title. In best scenarios, you’ll want to use the title’s exact match as a link.

If you cannot always use descriptive anchor text, or just look to give your linking structure a more natural feel, a good alternative for building relevancy is to include link titles within the code.

<a href=”contentpage.htm” title=”descriptive text”>Click here</a>

Search engines won’t put as much weight on this format as with the classical anchor text format, but is better than nothing.
