    Website Linking Strategies and The No Follow tag - Now Wikipedia has...

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Now Wikipedia has applied the ‘no follow' HTML tag on its external page links to stop it being abused by some webmasters. This can be seen on any site using this process, by the following steps:

    1. Highlight the link by left mouse and holding 2. Right mouse the link and look at the properties.

    The text "Nofollow" can be seen in the properties

    The no follow tag means Page Rank (or Reputation - PR) will not be passed on to your site and Google will not count it as a link. To Quote Wikipedia:

    "nofollow" actually tells a search engine "Don't score this link" rather than "Don't follow this link."

    However many of the Wikipedia pages rank very high on Google, and features as a trusted authority site which has power in all search engines. It is likely to send targeted traffic which is really the end result you are looking for anyway.

    At the same time, different engines treat these links differently. In a recent interview with the Yahoo director of search, they have stated that the link will be followed to the site, however the details of the link will not be passed on, simply that your site will be found.
