Nofollowed Pages

This section identifies pages containing the nofollow header tag. The ‘Nofollow tag’ refers to the meta robots HTML tag:

   <meta name=”robots” content=”nofollow”/>

Or the x-robots-tag HTTP header:

   X-Robots-Tag: nofollow

Both of these tags instruct search engines not to follow any link found when crawling a page. While this could be a good thing if the page contains links to some less-than-reputable sites, it is detrimental to your site’s internal linking. Pages that contain the nofollow tag will not be able to pass any link juice to other pages on your site.

This section displays the URL of the page containing the nofollow tag and the URL of the linking page.
