Guess: occurrences of rel="nofollow" (a 'link condom') have the links ignored
by search engines, thus they don't count. Pages with too many 'link condoms'
might be penalised or get no merit for accrediting sources and referring the
reader to suitable paths for expansion.

What about human visitors? Are you sure you want to do that or is this
question hypothetical? If you want to link to your competition, your best
count. But what about human visitors...?
