No, it just keep your authority score but don't make it really better. Get more link and it'll be better.

No I don't think so. What <meta content='nofollow'> will do is, it'll just make Google (and other search engines) not to follow any links on the page (very similar to using rel='nofollow' for every link on the page).

If you have pages with low amounts of content, like you mentioned, then you might want to use "noindex" to block them from search engines. This is important if you have a lot of pages with thin content. This will help you avoid a Panda penalty. But you need to carefully consider this in each case because it can have a negative effect if your content is actually sufficient. I'd have to see the actual content to make a solid recommendation.

No... Please note that nofollow means not following URLs in your website. So no benefits adding links of website in your website.

I appreciate you reminding me of this. I think that I have gotten carried away lately, and wondered why my page ranks got really hit. They proved it to me!

No.

The proper tag you should use if you want to do this is:
Code:
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow">
Where:
noindex tells the bots that obey such a meta tag not to include the page in their index.

nofollow means "Don't follow the links on this page". It doesn't have anything to do with blocking the indexing of the page.

Domain authority is a Moz thing:
Quote:
"Domain Authority represents Moz's best prediction for how a website will perform in search engine rankings. Use Domain Authority when comparing one site to another or tracking the “strength” of your website over time. We calculate this metric by combining all of our other link metrics—linking root domains, number of total links, MozRank, MozTrust, etc.—into a single score...

...Domain Authority is Moz's calculated metric for how well a given domain is likely to rank in Google's search results. It is based off data from the Mozscape web index and includes link counts, MozRank and MozTrust scores, and dozens of other factors. It uses a machine learning model to predictively find an algorithm that best correlates with rankings across thousands of search results that we predict against. ..."
What is Domain Authority?

I would fix the low quality content myself.

Another way of implementing the nofollow, on a per link basis, rather than on a page wide basis it to encode you tag as follows:

<a href="signin.php" rel="nofollow">sign in</a>

bots cannot do things like sign-in, so there is no reason for them to follow this link.

I tried to find out more on the behavior of search engines concerning the no follow. A Google article stated that if it is your purpose to keep that page from getting indexed, it could still get indexed by other means, such as other links to it. And I have heard, but never confirmed that bots can just discover things by accident.

My conclusion is best said at the end of the article "Use rel="nofollow" for specific links" in Google's Webmaster tools:

"However, a solid information architecture — intuitive navigation, user- and search-engine-friendly URLs, and so on — is likely to be a far more productive use of resources than focusing on crawl prioritization via nofollowed links."
