#Nofollow might hurt SEO
It will be interesting to see how many #bloggers add the nofollow attribute to outbound links. Why? Because adding rel-nofollow to outbound links removes much of the incentive for people to contribute content to a blog as a guest contributor.… Some people just want to get the word out, but in our experience the vast majority of people who contribute to blogs are hoping for a link.

Why? Because fresh, high-quality content, is a big SEO signal. It then follows that by adding NOFOLLOW attributes… to all links as a matter of course could also hurt the Google rankings of the blog. Do we know this for sure? No. But we suspect it could happen in many cases. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
