Google: Internal PageRank Sculpting Is A Waste Of Time

Google Wasting Time

Google's John Mueller said on Twitter that he believes using the nofollow link attribute for internal PageRank sculpting is a waste of time. He said "I think it's a waste of time to do that" when asked about it.

Here are those tweets:

I suspect many SEOs disagree with John on this but what else is new.

PageRank sculpting predates the nofollow attribute, I believe Bruce Clay use to call it siloing. In any event, Google has never been a fan of SEOs or webmasters putting time and effort into that.
