Does anyone know where i can get a script which i can use in an HREF tag that google etc. can't spidered?

<a href="#" onclick=java script:.....siteURL..... rel=nofollow>text link</a>

I have some important outgoing links that go to a third-party registration from my site, but i don't want them passing any link juice etc. I already use the rel=nofollow to minimize the link juice being passed out, but i don't want google counting this link as an outgoing link as i use it many times on the web site.

Nofollow is all you need. Obsessing over "link juice" isn't going to help you anyway.

Google actually does spider some javascript links now, so nofollow is your best bet for keeping link juice from external sites.

However, if you use nofollow, note that it doesn't appear to keep the link juice on the page. Instead, per Matt Cutts' comments at SMX Advanced this year, it may actually 'nuke' that portion of your PageRank.

In most cases, if you want to do a better job of funneling pagerank around, the best way is through architecture: Reducing the number of links on a page, etc..
