One New Thing: Nofollow.

Since I have HTML tags on the brain, it seems fitting that a new tag has been conveniently introduced over the past few days for me to blog about. :)

Six Apart has a short and sweet introduction to the nofollow tag and its uses. Basically, it’s a way to mark links on a page that the page owner has put there, and links that visitors leave in comments. Why? So that search engines become less likely to index comment spam, and it becomes less useful for comment spam to exist.
