Disavowing Links – rel=”nofollow”

This seemed like a good solution, for sites that I could control, add a rel=”nofollow” to the link so Google wouldn’t follow it. I did that, but it seemed to have no effect. I don’t know if Google just forgot to pay attention to it or not, but I’ve decided to remove the link entirely.

As of 9/5/13, the report shows a site I control linking in 193 times. I am removing the link entirely and hope it will prevent the linking.
