    A no follow link would be just text but - if you provide a answer that's intriguing, a person can just copy and paste the link into their browser to visit.

      A noffolow links won't be just text. Clickable links can be nofollow if a noffolow tag is included. The tag determines whether it is noffollow or doffolow. If your Hubscore is too low Hubpages automatically makes all the links nofollow

    Nope! The no-follow links won't pass any rankings. That's what makes them different from dofollow links. Nofollow tags give indication to search engines for not following it. There it has no value. However with nofollow links you can get traffic from the source.

    In the blogger new interface you have the option to add noffolow links very easily. The link will be clickable but search engine won't follow it. Hope this will help.

    Despite the name, some search engines will follow nofollow links to discover new content to crawl, so nofollow links may help in one small way: to get content indexed for the first time, before it's in any search engine indexes.

    However, nofollow links pass almost* zero pagerank, so they don't help a page rank better in search results.

    *See this post by Google engineer Matt Cutts explaining pagerank and nofollow links:

    As far as my experience nofollow links helps to get rank but they does not increase your page rank. Hope that helps.

    If you mean Google, No follow links shall no pass any "link juice", but it certainly shall add to the trust and authority of your website, and make your link building process look like a natural process.
