Topic: rel="nofollow" for forum links
I just found out that links on this forum aren't rel="nofollow". This means that if I put a link in my profile or signature to my website, search engines see the same link to my site on every url (topic or message) that I have posted in.
The Google Webmaster Center already counts 52 links from wolfcms.org to my website. And it could become many more, because I have 106 posts on this forum. That's 106 url's and not even counting the url's of the topics that contain a post by me. I'm sure there are people with many more possible 'links' on this forum.
Isn't there a risk that Google (and other search engines) might see this as spamming? Wouldnt it be preferrable to change the links into rel="nofollow" links? And even if Google doesn't see this as spamming, this could attract the real spammers to this forum.
Just my 2 cents.
FYI, I just removed the link from my profile, just to be sure.
