Normally they are not useful but when your no follow links have good PR and if they are government websites then google will give you the PR-Juice

thank you!

Yeah, I think even if it says nofollow there are still some positive search engine factors to getting those links.

They have some weight but not as much as ones that are followed.

I think all backlinks would have their values on SERP though dofollow ones would also help in PR.

A "nofollow" link effectively stops a link being a link. Adding the "nofollow" attribute to a link basically informs Google that the link does not count as a vote, does not pass topical relevance or PageRank.

"nofollow" links do not pass PageRank and do not pass anchortext

Matt Cutts from Google says "Nofollow is method (introduced in 2005 and supported by multiple search engines) to annotate a link to tell search engines ďI canít or donít want to vouch for this link.Ē

Most blog commments are "nofollow" links,

Some people argue that "nofollow" links pass PR and that you cannot sculpt pagerank, I tend to agree with Google and say that "nofollow" links mark a link as non link. I think we can also sculpt PR just not precisely

You will not get a page rank with a nofollow. However they can help with traffic to your site also it helps with keywords so the more keywords you have out there the better.

Thanks for the comment. I have read these same statements from SEO experts.

I would tend to agree.
While the theory is that no link-juice is passed, I find it hard to accept that a no-follow link from an authoritative site (government, educational site) will not have some positive impact on the recipient website.

I am a great believer in 'common sense' and certainly Google has nearly always followed a common sense approach in everything it does.

thank you!
This has no basis at all from my experience. Nofollow links help in getting traffic to your site - that's about it. You don't get any PR juice from it even if it is from a .gov site. Nofollow simply means that the site linking to you does not vouch for your site and therefore PR is not given.

I am not talking about link-juice. I am referring to 'value'.

I repeat "I find it hard to accept that a no-follow link from an authoritative site (government, educational site) will not have some positive impact on the recipient website.".
