I’ve been reading this anchor tag attribute in the blogosphere and base on my research, Nofollow is an attribute that can be added to links to discourage Comment Spam. It is used with the rel=" " attribute in a link.

<a title="Article" href="http://example.com/article" rel="nofollow">
Article Example</a>

As described in the Google Blog:
From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel="nofollow") on hyperlinks, those links won't get any credit when we rank websites in our search results.
By default, posting links generates no positive benefit for the poster in terms of PageRank (or other search engine value) the spammers will be dissuaded from wasting their time. Time will tell how well this works.

Therefore, using this attribute in achor tag will not give credit to the hyperlink. Anyway, I don’t care because I do not put that attribute in my anchor tag unless someone links to my page and used the said attribute.
