Wikipedia Makes All Links NOFOLLOW

As of January 21st, 2007 all outbound links from the English Wikipedia Site are now using the NOFOLLOW attribute no matter what.

This was something that was only a matter of time till Wikipedia HAD to enforce this rule b/c so many spammers were populating the site. It is unfortunate that it had to come to this but in all honesty this is for the better and I expect the Wikipedia site to be much improved and less filled with “spammy” “External Links”
