Google has suggested to add [rel=’nofollow’] to external links. Do you think that operator will be mad at me if I do that to their link at my website or they couldn’t care less?

They shouldn’t care. If they do care, it means they’re using your link to boost their PR, for SEO reasons, which can ultimately allow them to compete against you in the search engines.

I would add rel=”nofollow” to all of your affiliate links. If the operator objects, I’d drop them, because it would be clear at that point what their intentions were.

That could work for Link pages.

What if the link is in a content page?
“no follow” in this case means that my own page will be ignored by the SE.
Crazy.

You wouldn’t use rel=”nofollow” on a link that points to a page of yours, or to a link partner’s site. You would only use rel=”nofllow on links that point to online casinos, poker rooms, etc.

Just don’t use it on link partners :wink-wink

Very good point, gamblingguide.

Do NOT use rel=”nofollow” on your link partner links. :nono:

Villa: I think that your thinking about nofollow in the header of the page which your right it wouldn’t allow SE’s to crawl the page. What Adam is talking about is adding rel=”nofollow” in your affiliate links. Here is an example:

[/CODE]

Doing that at link level will allow you to keep link juice from passing through certain links without affecting the crawling of your pages. Hope that clears it up a bit.[CODE]Online Casino

Yes. That’s right.
I was thinking in the header of the page.

I’ve read out there that Google is suggesting that for paid links.
The page must have the “nofollow” robot.
In this way the link trade is not related with PR.
