I stumbled across Andy Beard’s Ultimate List of DOFOLLOW & NOFOLLOW PlugIns looking for some “follow” advice on my blogs.
I downloaded the WP Plugin: Nofollow from Home to add the “rel=nofollow” to the homepage posts of this very site along with some of my other blogs, so Google wouldn’t follow the affiliate links. You can be penalized for too many affiliate links on a site.
Then WordPress automatically adds the “rel=nofollow” to post comments, so I downloaded the DoFollow WP Plugin from Semiologic to remove the tag on comments and trackbacks. That will encourage other webmasters to comment and link to specific website posts knowing it will help their PR. Go ahead and try it out. Leave a comment on this very post including your URL – can’t beat a free one-way link… unless, of course, you do want to link to this site!
P.S. Yes, I know it’s Friday, and I am wearing a free t-shirt. I’ll see if I can get one of my daughters to snap a pic…
