Stop Losing Pagerank With Nofollow
What is Nofollow
rel=”nofollow” or nofollow is a command that you can add to a web link. When google or other search engine read a page, they look at links that link to that page. If google classes a page as important it allocates it page rank. The higher the rank the higher the page is seen as quality. By adding nofollow to a link you can stop pagerank from leaving your page , therefore keeping all of the pagerank “juice” on your page.
If you look at the bottom of this page you will see 3 icons, facebook,Twitter and RSS. These links all have the rel=”nofollow” tag added to them as i dont want pagerank leaving on every page I do and also its not as if facebook or twitter need extra pagerank.
