I am sure the majority of the members here (at least the ones who were interacting with me the last years) know that I was always always against the "nofollow" attribute. I had huge debates ending up nowhere.
Since SMX the are a lot of discussions in the SEO professionals circles, triggered from the comments of Matt Cutts about the death of PageRank Sculpting and the new way Google might be handling the Nofollow attribute.
So what's next?

3. Is PageRank Sculpting Dead? Inc. Matt Cutts Transcript
Some weeks weeks ago I implemented for the very first time the "nofollow" attribute on my web site (to some internal links), which I am not sure that I want to take them off at the moment for the reasons you all might understand.
My question is: If it is true that PageRank Sculpting was or is now a myth, and/or the "nofollow" attribute screwed up, is Bots Herding maybe the new way to go?
If page A has a followed link to page B, and the page B has a meta robots tag with a “noindex” directive, and page B has a link back to page A.
What should to happen in that case? Where does the PR go to?
