Yahoo doesnt care about "nofollow" links ?

Postby Jaded » Sat Jan 13, 2007 7:10 am

Dear members

I have one question to ask. I just checked backlinks of one of my sites on yahoo site explorer and noted that the first site being shown in the results is a site which has my link with a "nofollow" attribute.

Does this mean that yahoo doesnt care about rel="nofollow"? Can anybody else check and confirm this from their own sites? And what about MSN?
Any suggestions?

Thanks

I also have resons to believe its true. Yahoo follows rel="nofollow" links too on my site. But I have not noticed MSN or google doing that.

Where did you noticed that? Care to share?!

Rel="nofollow" simply tells SE bots not to read and follow a particular link, if that happen so in Google, that will be a really big issue.

I wonder why yahoo detect that no-follow attribute? Anyway, have you tried to re-check it again? According to your case It shows that Yahoo bots can commit mistakes to..But as what i have read to other forums, having a no-follow attribute is not really a fact that your site will not follow by the bots.. i think they also give some weight for that..

Maybe Yahoo is changing their algorithm and they calculated the backlinks? Yahoo takes a 'follow' on link. They indexes the linked to page and shows the existence of the link. If no follow is present on your link it means that no attribution is given to the target from the source of the link.

Both yahoo and google see no fllow links but yahoo shows the link google does not when you look at links to the website. Google does not give rank for no follow links but they do expect your website to have them. They think if you have alot olf links and all are do follow links then you gaming the search engines and it is not natural thier are no no follow links.

Do not worry about no follow links just make sure any link to your siote is from a good website and do not get too many links to fast. All websites will have some no follow links when people lsit the site and do not want to give and page rank or credit to the site but they think the siote helps people that use thier website. Example would be a website about fixing computer problems and you could link to microsoft and use no follow link instead of a do follow links they do not need help in search engine rank.
