Many of you know that I don’t agree with blogs using nofollow tags in their comments. After recently changing my wp theme, I completely forgot nofollow tags are default so pagerank wasn’t passing for the last few days.
This post is to let you know that I’ve installed and activated Denis de Bernardy’s “DoFollow” plugin and your links will now receive pagerank once again.
So why do blogs use the nofollow tags anyway? In my opinion it’s because they’re selfish! With the creation of the Akismet spam plugin, the comment spam problem is greatly reduced, eliminating the tedious moderation process.
That eliminates the excuse of comment spam, which is why nofollow was created in the first place. So next time you visit a blog that uses nofollow, ask them why they do it? I mean, you’re updating their pages by creating unique content, the least they can do is pass a little pagerank your way!
