hi,

rel="nofollow" prevents Googlebot from following the link but it still index the link whereas using robots in meta tag will affect the whole page.
please tell me how to prevent Googlebot from indexing a particular link on the web page.

Hi vicky

you could use javascript, here is an example:

<script type="text/javascript">
var str="The Link Text";
document.write(str.link("http://www.example.com"));
</script>

if you mean that you don't want the destination page indexed, then ensure there are no other links pointing to it, and/or use the robots meta in the destination page.

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">
