Google Didn’t Lie After All
Jordan McCollum says:

Two weeks ago, it looked like Google might have been . . . well, fibbing. Back in June, the search engine announced that they wouldno longer redistribute “link juice” around nofollowed links, effectively deprecating the practice of PageRank sculpting.
