Google Hints That Useful Nofollow Links Won’t Pass Weight (Or Much Of It)

Google Says The Nofollow Is Not A Dampening Factor

Danny Sullivan from Google hinted the other day on Twitter that links that are nofollowed, even if they are useful links, are unlikely to pass much weight or any weight at all. In short, despite Google changing how they see the nofollow attribute in 2019, links with the nofollow attribute on them are probably not worth much of anything in terms of SEO.

Danny said on Twitter “In the past, as the post explains, we just wouldn’t use the links at all.” “The change meant we’d consider them if there was some usefulness to be found, though the hint means aren’t likely to give them as much, if any, weight,” he added.

Here is the specific context:

Last we heard on this nofollow link attribute change, there was actually no change taken, no action was changed with this policy change. We’ve asked numerous times afterwards and still, I have not heard anything new.

Danny added this as well:

I find this nofollow SEO discussion topics fascinating, specifically around what Google says about it and what SEOs believe about it. Don’t you?

Happy Fourth of July – Google Doodle

Happy Fourth of July - Google Doodle

Wishing you all a happy Happy Fourth of July, as you can see, this site is all dressed up for the day (on desktop) and Google has their special animated Doodle. I’d embed the Bing theme but I was once threatened with a lawsuit for doing that (not by Microsoft but one of those image legal companies).

I have a ton to post but I’ll hold it all for tomorrow and let you all rest.

Have a wonderful July 4th and speak to you all tomorrow, July 5th.
