A few weeks ago, we ran a poll asking Will You Remove The NoFollow Attributes From Your Pages? Why did we ask SEOs and webmasters this question? With the recent update from Google on how they handle the nofollow'ed links, many SEOs had to revisit if they would continue to use them or not.

So I figured I would poll the readers here and see what they plan on doing. We received just under 300 responses.

Question: Will You Remove The NoFollow Attributes From Your Pages?

:: No, Leaving The NoFollow Attribute said 112 respondents or 38% :: Don't Know Yet said 63 respondents or 22% :: Removing Most Of Them said 60 respondents or 21% :: Yes, Removing Them All said 41 respondents or 14% :: Other answer... said 16 respondents or 5%

Poll On using Nofollow

Most of the "other" answers are in the form of, "I never used the nofollow in the first place."
