Wikipedia Links At The Bottom - Do They Count?

Of course they are very helpful and I for one always find that they are relevant and not spammy.....
Just wondered, thanks, Lister

As long as the page is indexed, meaning it's not excluded via robots.txt, look to see if there's a meta robots tag in the header section of the page that tells the bots not to follow any link on the page. Then assuming that's not there look at coding for the individual link(s) in question to see if they have a rel="nofollow" element to the link.

Internally in our SEO department we are chatting about how much "nofollow" links actually aren't followed, in testing, it would seem that Yahoo and MSN do definently follow them, Google also seemed to 'follow' them, but we aren't sure if that something else polluted the results, but nofollow links do indeed get followed in some engines!

Now however they're finally opening up Extensions, and have a dedicated team set up to enable and develop browser extensions. Extensions will make it a lot easier and more intuitive. It's not great yet --for instance as a dev you still cannot package extensions so people can simply drag and drop them, though that's already planned as a future update-- but being able to simply download a couple of files in a folder is a lot easier than it was before.
I did manage to pop up a blog post with quick instructions for nofollow highlighting in Chrome this morning. Mainly because I'd not seen anybody else who got it working yet.
