    Here is some confirmation about an important factor.

    "Q: Okay, but doesn’t this encourage me to link out less? Should I turn off comments on my blog?
    A: I wouldn’t recommend closing comments in an attempt to “hoard” your PageRank. In the same way that Google trusts sites less when they link to spammy sites or bad neighborhoods, parts of our system encourage links to good sites."

    Matt suggests that linking out to good sites will have some kind of positive improvement on your website.

    I remember hearing a good few years back about people linking to good sites in their niche from their homepage, anyone shed any light on this?

    Linking to bad neighbors will damage your pr ranking, it's not a news.
    But nice to hear that he don't recommend bloggers to close the comment section,
    Now we can save time to change a new comment system.

    I link to any site I feel is worth linking. I think my front page has over 1000 links. PageRank sculpting - bluck - sounds like people need to spend more time on creating worthwhile content.

    useful link, thanks.

    let the page rank flow naturally within your website, link out to good relevant sites that help your visitors or compliment your site's info and avoid linking out to bad neighborhoods. content is still king and good site design that's easy for users and the bots gives an advantage

    How does this all relate to disallows in the robots.txt? My ecom site has 12,661 pages disallowed because we got nailed for duplicate content. We sale batteries so revisons to each battery where coming up as duplicate content. Is PageRank being sent (and ignored) to these internal disallowed links as well?

    One of our category levels has hundreds of links to different series found under models, the majority of these series are disallowed. If PageRank acts the same with disallows as it does with nofollows, are these disallowed links are hurting our PageRank flow right? I am not looking to “sculpt” per say just fix a previous “fix” if it needs it. We walk a fine line between SEO and usability, of course leaning towards the customer.

    Matt cutts is playing with many peoples daily bread like he play with a nintendo game or something. Google should do PR more clear and move Matt Cutts away from the power.

    Matt touches on some important topics in that blog post. One that I found informative is how people try to use nofollow to push their pagerank juice to certain parts of their site. But,,, its the parts the website owner things is important. Someone else might be looking for other parts of the site and other information.

    So its better to let the incoming pagerank flow through your site. That way your not excluding parts that other people might be looking for.

    Good article.

    Even if you don't care about PR it is still worth a read.

    Either that or Google wants you to think Matt Cutts holds all the power.
