No Follow

A strategy for dealing with PageRank spam on blogs and wikis. Google suggests adding

to all user-submitted links. Spiders would notice the attribute and not grant additional pagerank based on the presence of the link. See for details.

SunirShah has a thorough analysis of the shortcomings of this proposal. See the SisterSite link to MeatballWiki below.

if it is possible to only rel="nofollow" some links it may be useful i.e. only nofollow links not on a WhiteList? will address to a large extend Sunir's last point although there is still the not noticing problem
