I am going through my site until I can get some help on the treat robots as user mod, and adding  rel=\"nofollow\" to every link, like postcard lightbox button and everyother link I can think of that I dont want bots to follow.... can someone tell me if there is anything good or bad to this strategy?

... {ifno is_bot}Link for all but not for bots{endifno is_bot} ...
... this works perfectly to hide the "nofollow"-links for bots ...
