Hi,

I've been reading some of the debates and best practices about nofollowing external links from a website, but didn't find the particular details of my question.

I'm redoing my site and have added links on my homepage to my review pages (Google, Yelp, Yahoo!), as well as links to my G+ profile, facebook and twitter pages. Just curious if I should be making these links nofollow? It makes sense to me as the links are strictly informational - that is, provided specifically for users to research/follow my business rather than an attempt to somehow pass a link to those pages.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Absolutely not!

Nofollow should only be used for links to places you don't trust or can't vet such as comment links made by others.

Thanks, Jill! I was curious after reading an article earlier today about nofollowing links to Google Place pages. The argument was that PPs are search results rather than business pages that can acquire authority/PR (like a facebook page). Just wondered if there was any reason to nofollow facebook, twitter, etc.

I'd suggest not reading at sites that talk about using nofollow in anyway other than for untrusted content. They're way behind the times, and it was never a good idea to begin with.
