I looked up on Google about this and most of the articles talk about not making nofollow links my social pages, instead making them rel="me", I got that. But I want to know if it is a good idea to add nofollow to share links such as:

  • <a href="https://twitter.com/share?url=..." rel="nofollow">Share</a>
  • <a href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=..." rel="nofollow">Share</a>
  • <a href="https://plus.google.com/share?url=..." rel="nofollow">Share</a>
  • and so on

What's your take on this?


nofollow needs to be used only:

  • when you don't trust the links (in your case links to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.)
  • for paid links
  • for crawl prioritization

You are not in these 3 cases, that's why if I were you I wouldn't add nofollow to these links.

More info about nofollow on this Google's support page.
