    I have the following code:
    SEMrush
    <input type="image" src="../Images/main/image.jpg" alt="Details" onclick="window.open('http://www.website.com')" />

    Can Google follow this link? If yes how do I make it "nofollow"?

    Thanks!

    No. Google will not follow links in JavaScript. So you don't need to make it nofollow.

    Google does not follow links in javascripts.
    But links as you are talking about have nothing to
    do with nofollow. People have deranged nofollow
    into something it isn't. It is only to really be used to
    not allow PR to be passed on. It has nothing to do
    with indexing, crawling, finding, etc. If it exists on the
    web, google can find it. If you don't want google
    indexing something, us the noindex. But even then,
    you cannot, as an individual, really control what google
    intends to index. You can try. And what google does
    has nothing to do with yahoo, bing, etc.

    nofollow was created by google to avoid passing PR onto
    unmoderated, immediately posted links.

    rel="nofollow" is the command that makes it a no follow link, i think this might work;

    <input type="image" src="../Images/main/image.jpg" alt="Details" onclick="window.open('http://www.website.com')" rel="nofollow" />

    I don't believe that Google submits forms.
