And what is the difference between rel="nofollow" and a nofollow meta tag on each page? Is it now also a bad idea to use
meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"
This is worth contrasting with...
meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"
...which I think is often the best way to keep a page out of the index while maintaining PageRank circulation within your site. It doesn't solve all problems, but it can minimize the rel="nofollow" black hole effect.
