wouldn't it be better to have noindex,nofollow on admin bar links?

I've implemented integrated google search engine on my site and i was surprised, that all those admin bar links were also in search results - sitewide, from all blogs.

Maybe for SEO purposes, it's better to keep AdminBar links away from indexing.

I am assuming admin bar you mean the "Buddybar" at the top of the screen. I'm not sure why either of those would be an improvement but I am not an expert on SEO (some of which I view as snake oil; content is king).

I am closing this ticket but please reopen with a future milestone if anyone has a justification for why this would be a good idea -- and remember such a change would affect all BP themes, not just bp-default.
