One thought on “Why did Google introduce the NoFollow tag?

  1. Arti says:

    No, NoFollow backlinks will not negatively effect your website. NoFollow tag was introduced to reduce link spamming (and thereby gaming Google’s ranking system). And No, your site will not be penalized because of that. You will either need to check the’HTML source’ of the page or do it the easy way by installing a Search engine optimization tool bar. You cannot simply look at a link and tell if it’s ‘Followed’ or ‘NoFollowed’.
