No - the whole point of rel=nofollow is to prevent that.

Hi RegularMember,

>>> would they benefit me at search rankings ?

This is where I once disagree a bit with -Archie_Watt- ...

I say it's extremely hard to know whether such links count for ranking or not. We know they don't pass PR, that's right, but we don't really know what else Google does with them. I'd say they must count for something depending from where they come. To have links from a spammy blog would probably be worthless, whereas one from an authority may well count a bit, regardless of any "nofollow" on it ...

I would think that a website linked to by nothing but do follow would look extremely suspicious.
The vast majority of real blogs are no-follow, thus real links from blogs would also be no-follow.

luzie these not spammy blogs. because they are highly page ranked and not allow spam messages. thats why i will comment manually. many believes that they even contribute to PR . of course also rankings. waiting your responses

Did I say so?

>>> many believes that they even contribute to PR


That's wrong, they don't pass PR, that's for sure -

- but as we always say PR and rankings haven't got much to do with another, influence of nofollowed links on rankings could still be possible.

That should have been a new thread, Philip Spring ^^

>>> Can anyone explain why i would rank
>>> higher without any Do follow backlinks


I suppose we're talking about www*springcleanwindows*co*uk ?

Here's some of your 'do-follow' links
