Getting SEO Value from rel="nofollow" Links

SEO Forum - Webmaster Forum - www.v7n.com
For those who think links with the nofollow attribute are worthless.... Rand Fishkin explains how they can actually be very valuable.

Quote:

...You post something with your site on one of these places. It includes a nofollow link. Someone finds it. We'll just call this guy over here, this is our friendly editor who works for a publication and finds it and says, "Hmm, that link was actually quite useful," or the information it pointed to was useful, the article was useful, your new company seems useful, whatever it is. Later, as that editor is writing, they will link over to your site, and this will be a followed link. Thus, you're getting the SEO value. You've indirectly gained SEO value essentially through amplification of what you were sharing through your link.

Google likes this. They want you to use all of these places to show stuff, and then they're hoping that if people find it truly valuable, they'll pick it up, they'll link to it, and then Google can reward that...

...So nofollowed links, not a direct impact, but potentially a very powerful, indirect way to get lots of good links and lots of good SEO value...
