What about if you use no-follow? Mueller has said having inbound nofollows won't hurt you because they just aren't really used by the algo. But I know a lot of people around here speculate that they COULD be seen as a signal to distrust the other site. Is that pure FUD, or has anyone done any actual testing or anything?
Nofollow *should* strictly indicate "I am not linking to this to improve its pagerank, but rather just to send it traffic." Which, if that's the case, should be perfect for what Saffron's wanting to do.
