Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Does It Matter That Wikipedia Made Its Links NoFollow?:


I get a good share of traffic from Wikkiepedia and that's what I want but the link love doesn't hurt. I'll have to watch and see how this might change things.


the link love will come back, with or without nofollow. I am almost 100% sure that this is going to happen.

And you got it right, the interested visitor traffic that is referenced from Wikipedia to your site is not going away. And that traffic is actually of good quality.

not getting the love for a while will not kill you. It's for the greater good. You might be able to make a Tax Write off hehe.

It's true that the visitors will still flow freely and that the traffic will be good and qualified. I think the end problem would be the ongoing results from a search engine standpoint. Someone with a site that large and that powerful turned from a 2 way street of search engine relevancy to a siphon. That's a large shift in weight.

yeah… those stupid wiki’s!
wonder what happen if we all use nofollow to them?

Have a good one.
