How to Convert Your Blog Into A Do Follow Blog


No Follow was  originally designed to stop comment spam in blogs.No Follow simply tells the search engine spiders that the link with the '"No Follow"  attribute should not be followed.
<a href="http://www.example.com/" rel="nofollow">Link text</a>

 
Do Follow is the opposite of No Follow. This means that when you leave a comment, it will appear on search engines as a backlink. It is a great way to  increase traffic,obtain backlinks and your Google page rank.

    1. Disquss comments are No follow. I think, you can't make the comment section do follow when using disquss comments. But, you can make other links do follow on your blog.

    1. Not all search engines recognize No Follow. It was a Google creation, and some of the big search engines put some merit and go by some or all of the No Follow rules.

  8. I've already updated my blog to "dofollow" when I knew it from Sir Ed Zafra. I wanted to share what my blog has to fellow bloggers who left a comment in it. However, it is sad to note, that there are comments which are just as "invalid" as it is. like "napadaan lang po!", "nice!", "thanks for sharing". Well, we have no choice if these "no sense" comments are abounding, but to delete them... :((

    Just a reaction from Gil Camporazo of RandomThoughts!

  10. I got curious about the subject of this blog so I checked the attributes of the commenters' blogs. I was a bit surprised to find that only one (that of Boris) has DoFollow attribute and it even has high PR3 at that. I admire the blog for its setting.

    In my case, I have two (2) blogs with PR3 that I set to have DoFollow attributes after 10 comments by a reader. I also have to close my blog posts to comments after 30 days to prevent spam comments.

  19. I want to answer questions regarding about disquss.
    For those bloggers who uses disquss comments. Sorry, it was No follow. I think you can't change it's properties.
    But, you can do follow other links. Like footer, header, widget sidebar, etc.
    Hope this might help. =)
