Nofollowing external links is thought to be a way of "hoarding" your PageRank or just being very careful with who you link to. So we asked in our poll the percentage of links nofollowed on your sites, on average.
We had 208 responses and 40% said they don't nofollow any of their external links. Here is the break down:
- 40% said Non Of My External Links NoFollowed
- 20% said only 25% Of External Links NoFollowed
- 15% said 50% Of Of External Links NoFollowed
- 13% said 75%+ Of External Links NoFollowed
- 8% said 100% Of External Links NoFollowed
There were some "other answers."
Are you surprised by any of these results?
