Because they don't want to promote others through their website.

No-follow was introduced as a link attribute back in 2005 as a way to tell search engines like Google that the link should not be “counted” by them.

The problem back then was that they counted all links as votes of confidence in a website as that was how Google’s algorithm was created.

But, certain links like advertisements and paid links should not be counted as such as they are not votes, but bought. So the nofollow was intended as a way to show that.

It has since been used extensively by websites to show that they do not trust a link and do not want Google to think they endorse it.

Some website owners do it on all blog posts if they allow guest posters (I think it is lazy) because they do not know or care to check what links the posters are adding to their content.

Nofollow links are links with a rel=”nofollow” HTML tag applied to them. The nofollow tag tells search engines to ignore that link. Because Nofollow links do not pass PageRank they likely don't impact search engine rankings.
