    How did you remove the 'nofollow' ? Ed

      Very easy - simply highlight a best seller / new product from your homepage in design / split view, look at the code and remove the nofollows - backup first! I always copy the code (original) in notepad or similar prior in case of mistakes.

        I think I found it, but I also found this in Meta Name <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow"> by clicking on the Best Sellers side bar

          Or individually as you have mentioned and you see this <p class="mktName"><a rel="nofollow"

          Which you then turn in to this? <p class="mktName"><a rel=""

          or just <p class="mktName"> which is what I think you mean

              That's what I mean Ed, I'm not exactly sure which bit to delete or what the code should end up looking like

                I simply removed two that I found in the code view in split screen within my best sellers, I am sure someone will clarify soon...

                  Code:
                  rel="nofollow"

We do have a task in the pipeline to replace the cgi links with static ones. Unfortunately this has delayed longer than I would have liked, due to other work.
                      I've been doing this for years and proven the code on huge sites many times, let me know if you would like it.

                        It helped me get my new products indexed fast again, essential for promoting new products without resorting to adwords. Although it is indexing it from the best sellers the immediate traffic to the product results in it being indexed from the correct location soon after.

                          When you have removed the nofollow the link should start <a href.. etc and the rest of the code following as it was. Note you should not change the Meta Name tag for robots nofollow, that is not the same thing, that code should be in the outer layout or meta tags layout and surrounded by a green blockif tag which checks for test mode. I.e. it is used by the site to block search engines from indexing the site when it has been uploaded in test mode to a separate "test" folder on the server.

                              Thank god you follow this Louise !!

                              I'm not changing that at all, So to clarify for anyone reading this, it is the individual items as per in the Best Sellers and New Products

                              Layout Code - Mini Best Seller Layout is the bit to edit, NOT the Meta Name tag

                                Advice.. if you are using SellerDeck filtering “make filtering the default view” the page link changes to use a cgi-bin link and needs 301 redirects or a canonical tag, but the canonical tag can't use variables store folder and page name for filtered pages as it affects search engines listings as they can't index content.
