Nofollow | Preserving Google Juice

 

When I did my round up of readers taking action of various kinds with , I missed out on one very active reader. I hadn’t been by his blog in a few days, and there has been quite a significant change.

Nofollow example - SEO best practice

Martins blog is hosted on Blogger, but look at how selective he is being in where he sends some link juice.
One thing I hadn’t noticed on Blogger is that on single pages these days there is a reduced sidebar. That is great for SEO because you don’t have to have things like your blogroll on every page.

One of the interesting things Martin does every week is post his with various programs. It is a great opportunity to repeat the affiliate programs a second time, especially if the program is 2 tier.

A couple of additional pointers

  • All those affiliate links should be nofollow
  • Please remove the link to me from your blogroll or at least stick a nofollow on it

I do appreciate the gesture of being added to a blogroll, but I would much prefer my readers to retain just that little bit more pagerank.
I do appreciate links from within a post, but make sure you trackback so you gain some linkjuice in return.

    Thanks Andy for your positive comments I will do as you have suggested with the no follow on my affiliate links. I will also try and find a way to include some links to your posts.

    Cheers

    Thank you for the tips. I have just recently found out about the so-called “thin affiliate site penalty” and have begun going back through my older posts and putting nofollow on any affiliate links. However, since Karlonia is supposed to be an “open borders” community, I am preserving DoFollow policy for comments and trackbacks.

    That’s a logical point but one I’m sure many people
    including myself have neglected to pay attention to.
    I’m dropping everything else today and modifying all
    my affiliate links.

    Thanks for the Tip!
