Lets ask ourselves a question – since we have nothing to lose by using do-follow on every link, why do we still use no-follow on blog comment links?
All new comments on my blog need to be approved manually, and akismet takes care of the spam, so why do I still have no-follow on all links in the comments?
It simply serves no purpose anymore!
To promote and incentivise contributors to my blog, I’ve installed the do-follow wordpress comments plugin – I highly recommend you do the same.
So as of today, all past and new comments will no longer have the no-follow attribute applied to comments.
