    The idea is to add an additional checkbox in internal linking box to make it possible to add the nofollow attribute on a link.

    What's the reason for that? Internal link is linking to your own site, which doesn't actually give you link-juice anyway (that's achieved from external sites linking to you). Search engines already know about that. What benefit are you expecting from a no-follow on internals?

    The reason ?

    Because we are not obliged to do only internal link. Nothing prevents to make external links to other sites ;)

    Yes, but you specifically said "in internal linking box" so I'm asking why THAT :)

    If you mean the insert/edit link box, that's different.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nofollow-link/ can add it for the normal add a link, but there's probably not going to be one for the INTERNAL linking because good SEO means you're supposed to follow yourself ;)

  6. The dialog check box for dofollow or nofollow a link inside the linking form of post/page editor is great if WordPress developers can include it in the latest (experimenting) 3.5 beta 1 version of WordPress. It will help a lot.

    Of course, the option is available in blogger platform, making it possible for blogger users to decide whether added link should be dofollow or nofollow by simply checking the dialog box. Just the same way you decide whether your added link should open in a new window or not.

    It's probably going to remain a plugin. Unlike blogger, you can actually add things on as you want them with WordPress, rather than be forced to rely on everything being in core ;)

    I'm tired as well here Silvani, and the more I installed plugins to test, the worst they caused to the site.
