so, does that mean that nofollow links are worthless in terms of rankings?
and if so, then would linkless citations be worthless in terms of ranking factors as well?
I thought that these might be part of the recipe for "branding" that we hear so much about, and in that respect, they might HELP rankings.
(Really hoping so because PBS gave a page on my site a nice, big, juicy NOFOLLOW link - oh well)
Maybe branding is more based on how many people enter the name of the site into the search bar, as opposed to being "mentioned" on other sites (whether through nofollow links or linkless citations).
