Teletubbies Nofollow

Google's Gary Illyes posted a Twitter poll yesterday asking if you would like the Google Search Console team to add a toggle or filter to the internal link report to show which links are nofollowed and not nofollowed.

So far the poll has over 1,000 votes and 80% of those who responded said they want the filter. I am not sure who would not want the filter, I mean, it is just more features to have access to.

This would not be for external links but only internal links. Gary Illyes said that Google will not even think about showing you which links are nofollowed because that would give link spammers way too many tools to cause damage. Here are those tweets:

Here is some of the folks who voted no and why:

I am not sure I agree with that statement.
