I need to link to a new website, but I don't want Google to follow the link or recognize it in any way.
What's the best way to do this? I think that rel="nofollow" still allows Google to follow it, but just doesn't lend PR to the link, so it's not quite what I want.
And I'm not sure that this can be done with robots.txt. I know that I can prevent the entire page from being indexed, but I just want to prevent the link from being followed.
(I wasn't sure if this belonged under "Google SEO News and Discussion", since the topics there seemed to relate to Google as a business. Sorry to the mods if you have to move it.)
