    From March 1st 2020, Google will treat nofollow links as a hint for the purposes of crawling and indexing. What do you think about this update? And according to you how it will affect your keywords ranking?

    Google has said it's not going to affect ranking. And in many cases it's not even going to affect indexing.

    nofollow hasn't changed. What has changed are the two new link attribures (sponsored and ugc)

    No, that update is not going to affect keyword rankings.

    In my view, it will not affect the keyword ranking. The keyword ranking process will be worked like before.

    Sites that use the no follow link attribute receive no SEO benefit from the use of it. A page with 9 regular links and 1 nofollow link will be treated as a page with ten links.
