Google, Should I Add “no-follow” To Banner Ads?

A good question was brought up in the Google Webmaster Help Forum: Should I add “no-follow” to my banner ads? In-short, maybe.

For example most advertising programs such as Comission Junction will send all their links through a URL which is specified as a no-follow via a robots.txt file – that way your impressions do not get messed up by search engine bots. However if you’re using your own advertising system – chances are you will need to add a no-follow to your ads. Check out Google’s detailed answer in the video below:
