Dofollow or nofollow has always been confusing among the webmasters. Google suggests to add ‘nofollow’ attribute to the links. SEO Plugins always recommend to add ‘nofollow’ to outgoing links to have higher SEO Score. Do nofollow free links harm the SEO of a blog?
There is another half of the world. Community demands dofollow links. They call nofollow links selfish. They believe sharing enriches. That’s why commentLuv, keywordLuv, nofollow free plugin, dofollow.info community exists.
SEO MMO Tips remained the default NOFOLLOW for long (since it was started). Now it has got Google PageRank 3 and Alexa ranking 119K. I want to join dofollow community and have better interaction in my blog.
I was receiving some comments asking why the blog is not dofollow when it is keywordLuv enabled? They were asking what’s the use of keywordLuv if it does not pass the link juice?
Does it harm the PageRank and SEO if my blog is dofollow? I have seen many blogs that are ranked higher though they are completely dofollow. So it must not hamper in that scale. Let me see how this change affect the blog.
Making a blog dofollow will invite more comments and obviously more spams too! I’ve installed GASP, and enabled Akismet. I will be moderating each new comment author and hope I’ll be able to handle the spam issue.
I installed Nofollow Free plugin and configured it in such a way that the loyal commenters get dofollow link back to their site.
However there is a certain number of comments required before your anchor text is nofollow free.
I’d love to hear your views on this change. Please comment below.
