I have been having this thought pondering on my mind so I decided to ask the community. The question is: A link that was already rel=nofollow and then crawled by Google, and later changes to dofollow or have the rel=nofollow removed, how does this affect Google’s ranking?:
- Does it possess the same power as having the dofollow originally?
- Does Google sees this as trying to manipulate and not favor it?
- Does it possess power but not up to when it is given originally?
