|Why Google is following my links?|
| 7:09 pm on Mar 2, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I've following links blocked in my robots.txt:
On each page email link is as follows:
<a href="/tools/email.php?aid=100" rel="nofollow">Email this page to a friend</a>
But log shows that Google and other search engines are still following the links. Am I doing something wrong here?

Also please remember that rel="nofollow" was not intended to restrict robot access (even though it is called nofollow). Its purpose is to identify untrusted links to Google.
