    "Web Design By" links should be "nofollow" according to John M.

    I found it on other forum, and sharing for IMT Members...

    Based on a recently video here, John M recommends making all of our "web design by" credit links "nofollowed".

    I guess this kind of looks at things like with regards to unnatural links, for example.

    And from our point of view, these kind of links, by default, are things where the webmaster doesn't really place the link explicitly on their own.
    So what's going on? Is this another attempt by G to try and stem the flow of PR (which by the way we have no idea where site pages stand on PR these days) or is this an attempt to pass on a warning. If it's a warning of sorts, I'll bet there are at least hundreds, and potentially thousands of "designed by" credit links that a designer could accumulate over the years that could come into play.

    The rest of the article can be found at SEO RT.

    These kind of links stopped working looooong time ago... And actually linking site can get some kind of negative effect by those links.

    I think this sums up his point really well, "It's not something that you'd have to worry about later on and say, 'doh, my god. I put all these links on this website. Now Google will think I'm building an unnatural link pyramid or something crazy.'" I totally agree.

    the problem isn't whether is followed or no-followed, its the over optimization of anchor text. if you can keep it your keyword related brandname, you'll be fine.
    if it's a keyword rich anchor text, nofollowed or not, its likely to mess up your anchor text ratios
