JS or rel-nofollow?

 11:09 am on Aug 13, 2006 (gmt 0)

I want to use a linked banner but don't want the link to "count", JS was my initial thought but since I usually surf with JS disabled the rel-nofollow attribute may be the better option.

Any views either way?

I used JS before rel-nofollow. I would use no-follow now.

There is a question as to how widely no-follow has been adopted. I prefer JS. Guess it's a tradeoff between accidentally vouching for a link and having a certain amount of visitors not viewing the ad.

yahoo doesn't respect the nofollow. i've seen backlinks for my site in Yahoo from matt cutts' blog which are all nofollow links. there are some experts that say that SEs can follow links within javascript if they are recognizable. if you don't want it to count in any SE then i would suggest using javascript with some obfuscation but if you don't care about yahoo then go for the nofollow.
