    Interesting comments about Google treating aged 302 redirects as permanent. I worked on high street brand website where evidence suggested this was the case. Wrote some thoughts about it here.

    Excellent article, Eric! You touch on a number of areas in which the “common wisdom” hasn’t made any sense to me. Citations and mentions is something I have long felt carried some weight. Also, your point regarding Wikipedia is enough to make one reconsider the nofollow question.
    I suspect that Google, et al. have been anxious for some time to expand beyond (and perhaps, leave behind) links as the major factor. I now suspect that we’re likely to soon see a solution to that problem.

    Thanks for a great thought-provoking piece!
