I think that many webmasters have noticed a decline in the number of external links its panel Yandex Webmaster .
What's the matter? Can features of the next automatic update ?
No. It turns out that Yandex is no longer allows links with nofollow attribute of what became known in the reference section of Yandex.
As can be seen from the above quotation, reference page was built hastily (twice repeated the line "reference is a reference to the image").
As it turns out, now Yandex does not see links tagged nofollow? As the experiment showed Daniel is not quite true.
Yandex handles the nofollow attribute as well as Google. Reference is visible in the context of the page but is not included in the transfer of weight and ranking.
Well, the developers Yandex did the right thing: they do not have to turn over all RUnet entering the new attribute, and took advantage of the existing ones. Plus, now the text pages will not lose a meaning, because likely to cause "white spots" in the content, because the links in the tag noindex Yandex does not see at all (and the text of the link, respectively).
There is only a sense of uncertainty. What now wait for webmasters and optimizers after the next update of the base Yandex? Most likely, the fall positions of many of promoted pages linked bought in burzhuynete. Is also expected to fall in the TCI and all this implies.
To sum up, there are several self-conclusion suggests itself:
- Website promotion by commenting on blogs has become useless.
- Wikipedia now also is not "tidbit".
- Social bookmarking using nofollow lose interest on the part of SEO.
- Increase the popularity of dofollow blogs.
- TCI will drop massively, which of course will raise the price of links from sites that have retained TCI.
- Links with banners, counters, and other images are no longer taken into account.
- I wonder what will happen to tag noindex?

Then he fell out of my page issue - but there was splogov. Who cares, he can
