Sometimes "Nofollow" Is Followed  (View post)

Ask.com is indexing no follow link content and treats it like it was any other link. But the difference in their upcoming search algorithm change could prove to end up with the net effect that Yahoo has (could be better or worse). That is, it will get indexed, but user input (through clicking and tagging) is what will ultimately determine it's relevancy.

Google might follow it as well, it all depends on the space.

But isn't this old news? :-)

This is such an easy issue to test, I'd be amazed if it surprises anyone in the SEO business. Or do people just believe whatever is written on the net? :-)

I agree John I have been seeing this since it came out.

I think the real point the guy was trying to get across is that he's got the email addresses of some people that work for search companies. Because a link to a new page with nofollow and a quick look at server stats would have told you all of this in about 5 minutes. Not really ground breaking investigative journalism here, more of an ego stroke.
