    Arrow BotSnack.com Search Bot Food site

    Hello,

    Does the site BotSnack.com have FOLLOW links or NO-FOLLOW links?

    For some reason, my explorer won't show me the code.

    Please help.

    It appears to be some sort of php link script were the actual URL of the site is in a php file off page. I would have to assume that there would be very little SEO advantage to put your site there for two reasons, it's a low PR site (PR0) and with the URLs possibly hidden then what's the point?

    I could be wrong but I do know this....post some comments here in sitepoint for excellent SEO love from the S.E.s, you links will carry more poundage than in a low ranked "just for links" site.

    Oh yea...create a signature for yourself before you post next time!

    Hope this helped,

    Well it is a brand new site so has no PR yet. However, I have seen traffic from there to my news sites. Just wanted to know if they were FOLLOW links. I am suppossing they would be, because the whole point of the site is exposure to search bots.

    Thanks for your help.

    If your sole intention is exposure to the search bots then there is no need to worry about the no_follow tag. A S.E. bot will go to those URLs even with a no_follow tag. The no_follow tag simply stops your link from counting as a credible link towards SEO.

    Search bots crawl all links with or without tags.

    Hope this helps,

    P.S. where's your signature? Don't waste prime real estate!

    That's a little confusing, the rel="nofollow" used on the individual links has the effect that you're describing.

    If you use nofollow in the meta tagging though, the page will not be scanned for links to follow. So if a blog has that in it's meta tags, there's no point adding a link if you're trying to get backlinks or PR.
