There would be no reason to comment spam unless they leave a URL.

By the way there is new developements among the top three search
engines concerning comment spam.


I have never used the rel="whatever" for any links. Has anyone ever used that to assist in theme identification among links? Did it help?

The rel="nofollow" attribute news was just releaesd on Tuesday. I
don't think the search engines have started to recognize it yet - at
least MSN stated that it woudl take a few weeks on their side before
the rel="nofollow" was honored.

I understand that it's "nofollow" that is new and has a particular meaning for search engine spiders. The spiders have been instructed to not follow that link when they encounter 'nofollow'.

What I meant was that rel="whatever" is not new. It is supposedly used as a way to show the relationship between your page and the page you're linking to. So does it? Has anyone done any experimentation with that to see if it makes a difference at all?

Typical link:
<a href="http://www.widgets.html";>widgets</a>

<a href="http://www.widgets.html"; rel="widgets">widgets</a>

Would the alternative link above add any value?
