Barry Schwartz placed a recent recent Google Webmaster Help thread where Google John Mueller said nofollow tag can be used for crawl prioritization aims. .

John said it may be used” to some stage, for crawl prioritization." Now, the words” to some stage” is where john is referencing the PageRank flow published mentioned in 2009. .
