Why are link backs to RPGfix not allowed to have rel="nofollow" in them?

Nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target’s ranking in the search engine’s index. It is intended to reduce the effectiveness of certain types of search engine spam, thereby improving the quality of search engine results and preventing spamdexing from occurring.

RPGfix does not use the nofollow attribute on our directory. All of our directory links are pure hyperlinks. This means that people get good "link juice" by listing with us, and as a result, a higher Page Rank. Since all of our links also have to be manually approved, we also ensure that all links submitted are relevant to RPGs.

The basic fundamental behind hyperlinks is to "spread the word," but by sticking in a nofollow tag you are indirectly breaking this bond. When search engines stumble upon a hyperlink with the nofollow attribute, many of them simply ignore the link, rendering that link unfindable on the internet.

As RPGfix is a reciprocal linking directory, we expect other sites that link to us to value our URL just as must as well value theirs.
