    >> rel="nofollow"


    will you still use this code if the affiliate link is not of that casino domain ?

    such as the affiliate network domain

    You can use it in any external url link. It won't have ANY impact on the function of the link other than not pass PR.

    PM me your code and I'll show you how to implement it.

    Hope this helps.

    Dolally,
    How to use target="_blank (new window) + no follow in your example?

    Thanks

    Although you need to wait the next PR update from google to see the results, rel no follow helps a lot when it is included to outgoing links.

    Just be cautious, never put it on your internal links.

    Generally speaking your right.. but..

    I would consider some internal links with a rel="nofollow" for sitewide FAQS or contact us page. These links will be on EVERY page soaking up link juice. If you'd rather send more link weight to a casino content page that converts then limit the PR leakage to low conversion pages.

    On the other hand.. there's a school of thought that beleives that it's not necessary..

    Hi All,

    Personally I don't exclude any pages on my site(s). I tend to use fancy navigation at the top and and basic text link navigation at the bottom of each page. This gives me double the number of internal links.

    Though that's not the main purpose, I use it to aid in bots to easily crawl the site and to help visitors from having to scroll back up the page to the top navigation.



    Cheer

    True, i didn't thought it before...

    Especially when putting nofollow at Contact pages, it can help to lower the number of spam mails bombing your inbox

    If your having spam issues with displaying your email address there are plenty of safe alternatives that wont allow your email to be harvested.

    I have been using a Catcha (Turin #) for every email sent via my onlinemail form. However, I've now started using a flash driven form which gives away no page clues to spammers.

    (remove xxx to check it out).

    To be honest, if you're running a mirror site or a basic "affiliate site" then you don't stand much of a chance of staying in a search engine for long.

    Adding a blog section with regularly updated content gives a search engine spider a reason to return to your site and sets you up instantaneously as an information provider which is key to building "authority websites". Of course once you create a blog (I recommend a hosted WordPress.org solution) then you have RSS which enables your content to be syndicated and straight away enables deep linking and increasing inbound links.

    Blogging is an easy solution to combat a search engines algorithm that may tag you as a "mirror site" or "affiliate site" and that's my top tip of the day and in response to 301 redirecting with rel="nofollow", well that's just something that will help you if your site is deemed useful to a human user, otherwise, you can redirect it using any method and add that rel attribute all you like, it's not going to do much
