View Full Version : confusion about external no follow link

02-15-2011, 05:18 AM
Hi, I was analysing a competitors link-structure (as good as this is possible today) and was wondering why he outranks one of my sites: He has much less links, but is linked from wikipedia (with rel="nofollow") and from a comment in a PR-9 blog (with rel="external nofollow").

So do I have to conclude that these links actually do pass PR (and a lot of it)? Would this unfortunalty end up that I have to do the same wiki- and blog-spamming my competitors do, just to keep up, and the rel-tag is worthless?

link which will not help targeted website in rankings. Such links are present in many social media sites, prohibiting posters to boost their website rankings by simply pasting links to their websites.
