The top Bookmarking websites add a No-Follow attribute to links shared by members.This results in the link not being indexed by the leading search engines and having no effect on Google Page Rank.So basically apart from people seeing the link and clicking it you get nothing in the way of improved search ranking etc.By bookmarking on the top 20 sites listed below you get your links followed by Google and the other search engines and improved search rank and page rank.Sounds Great lets look at the list..

This is how the main search engines see a Nofollow link :
“Google states that their engine takes “nofollow” literally and does not “follow” the link at all. However, experiments conducted by SEOs show conflicting results. These studies reveal that Google does follow the link, but does not index the linked-to page, unless it was in Google’s index already for other reasons (such as other, non-nofollow links that point to the page).
Yahoo! “follows it”, but excludes it from their ranking calculation.
Bing respects “nofollow” as regards not counting the link in their ranking, but it is not proven whether or not Bing follows the link.
Ask.com also supports the attribute”
