New Webmasters Now Nofollow Free

I have installed a WordPress plugin that removes the nofollow attribute from all the comments on this website.

I have never really been a fan of nofollow and I think it’s only fair that good comments should be rewarded with a backlink.

So fell free to leave a comment on any article or post here and your backlink will be marked as followed. I use Akismet for spam filtering, so any spam will still be blocked.

  2. I agree, good comments should have the opportunity to be seen. As well as adding to the backlinks to your blog, comments are often a major part of the content. I will investigate this, although I think with WordPress 2.7 you have the opportunity to make comments Follow, or is it only Posts… Worth checking… Thanks :)

  11. Do someone know a similar plugin for Joomla?

  12. Good for you. THe lack of spam on your comments is either a testament to your moderation skills or your anti-spam software.

    I am considering making my blog a “do-follow” blog as well.

  15. That’s great news. Do follow is always welcome. I hope lot of webmasters will follow you on this. By the way which plugin did you use to make these changes.

  16. That’s a good move from your side.
    But people who make good comments doesn’t see if the blog is follow or dofollow.

  18. Hey great idea.Anybody Knows a list about blog follow links?

    Posted by series | March 7, 2010, 7:56 pm
  19. I like this idea. It attracts commenters and therefore attracts visitors.

  20. Sometimes webmasters have to use nofollow because of the heavy spamming. Nowadays there are lots of software which automatically posts to your blogs. These spam attempts force many dofollow blogs to switch to nofollow.

  23. With all the blogs out there with material on them with a ton of rubbish it’s nice to find a blog whose admin takes the time to construct good information. TY for the good post.

  24. Thats really cool. I have put the NoFollow Free wordpress plugin on my site. I really am not a big fan of nofollow. I think akismet is a pretty good way to filter spam as well as moderating comments. I think the nofollow attribute has done more harm than good.

    Posted by Mark | December 24, 2010, 5:28 am
  25. NoFollow Free blogs are the way forward, its only right that those commenting on a blog should get some of the credit for any good content that they write. Maximum props for doing this and keep up the good work!

  26. The attribute rel=”nofollow” for hypertext links in HTML web pages was originally proposed as a way to limit the effect of blog and forum comment spam on search engines’ indexes. However, the proposal has some serious drawbacks. We want you to watch the spread of nofollow and support us. We give you some very good reasons against nofollow and show you that there are a lot of people out there, thinking like we do.

    Posted by Den | September 26, 2011, 5:52 pm
  27. There are a lot of bloggers out there who are not aware that the attribute rel=”nofollow” is set up as default in comments in WordPress.

    I hope that the word will spread and more bloggers disable the nofollow attribute on their blog. there are plugins available for this.

    The reality is that the nofollow tag is hurting bloggers and not fighting spam and people commenting should receive credit for the contributions they make to a blog’s content.

  28. well, i was really happy to read that someone knows that good comment need to rewarded. I really appreciate your effort getting all the nofollow out of the picture. Thanks a lot ^^
