Sure it would be read as just any other text on the page when it is visited by the bot?
I think a no follow link would have the attribute: rel="nofollow".

So for example:

Code:
<a href="signin.php" rel="nofollow">sign in</a>
So I think when the bot sees this attribute on the href tag, it just ignores it. But then I also heard that google bot keeps a "Social Score" when it sees your link on popular social network sites. So they do consider it even when it is a no follow. Quite confusing.

Have a look at this:
