Google | Yahoo | MSN | Cooperatively Introduce rel=”follow” tag

I missed this a few days ago

At the request of WhiteHat SEO community on April the 1st this year all major search engines including Google, Yahoo and MSN Live declared their joint support for a newly developed XFN standard.
The new attribute rel=follow is designed to complement the notorious rel=nofollow. However unlike nofollow attribute rel=follow is designed to express not negative but positive relationship between a linking website and a website rel=follow link points to.
I’ll try to explain it in layman’s terms…

    Hahaha, nice find Andy. Of all the tomfoolery that went on that day, this one was my favorite! Much better than some stupid “My site got hacked” / “I got sued” / “I’m quitting blogging”.

    Did you notice I bolded certain words?

    It was a good one, made me laugh, and I thought it deserved a mention, even if a few days late.
