This site has NO-follow so stop following me already!

Recently, another spate of ‘giant list of do-follow’ blogs list appear and a lot of newbies were conned into believing that those list contains do-follow blogs.

Before I go on, let me explain in the simplest and idiot-proof way, what is do-follow and no-follow.

Do-follow means when the search engines come to my site, it will continue to follow whatever links that appear on my site. Previously, we had this do-follow plugin that allows commentors to get a link back to their own blogs. If let’s say my blog is PR 4, the search engine spider will crawl my site and then, follow it to your site. This way, my site will sort of ‘pull’ you and alleviate you higher. This is what they means by ‘selling link juice’. If let’s say I sell text link ads on my sidebar or get paid to post another site’s link, those sites will benefit from my site PR.

That’s why so many of us had been smacked with PR 0 because Google doesn’t like this.

No-follow means when the spider comes, they stop there and won’t go to your blog link. This makes Google happy.

By default, all WordPress blogs have no-follow added in the comment. So, my dear, I am sorry to break your heart but this blog has no-follow. I am a selfish bastard. I had said so. But if you still insist to leave your comments with your long, long keywords, I may allow it because my blog looks good with so many comments. Muahaharrr…..another obnoxious post from me. I hope it has been informative for you.

Thanks for your comments anyway.

    The long long comments with keywords will help the search bots to come to your site instead :D

    I am one of those who was very blur about this no-follow and do-follow thingy and all those guides and explanations that I read on this so far made me even more confused.

    So thank you for making it so simple for web-simpleton like me :-p

    Google actually slapped a lot of blogs with a big fat zero because they sold do follow links, especially text links ads..

    hey mamma..

    It’s funny to see you use the “nofollow” on your own link.
    To be straight to you, “nofollow” can be used on your own link to your sites.
    Why must block the spider to crawl on your own sites within the same domain?

    :)

    Ohh..now I know, you use “nofollow” on your front page or homepage but inside the individual post you don’t apply it..

    Nice try
