Also – just in case anybody’s wondering about nofollow links – its a tag commonly and automatically placed on links from blog comments, social/news/other media websites, directory entries and other outgoing links which basically tells the search engines “Hey don’t treat this link as any kind of vote for the site we’re linking to”. It stops the flow of any PR or anchor text type juice as if the link didn’t even exist.

You won’t notice it as a user as the tags are in the html code but it helps many websites avoid getting penalised for linking out to other sites (e.g. where the links are purchased or placed without checking quality of the website linked to).
