Handle External Links

Handle External Links gives you the power to add rel="nofollow" based on header status (i.e. 404), PageRank of destination URL and many more

How to set a "best before date" for my posts?

In your admin panel, click on the 'Settings' menu tab and navigate to 'Handle External Links'. Here you can pick a date that will affect all posts/pages older than this value.

How does "Set Nofollow on 404's" work?

This feature will automatically ping the URLs to check whether the page returns a 404 status or not. If there's a 404 it will set the link to rel="nofollow".

How do I set nofollow based on PageRank?

Navigate to the Settings page and select a PageRank from the dropdown. Note: If you select PR 9 it will result in setting nofollow on all your external links because it's practically impossible to have a greater PR.

Will my whitelisted links ever have a rel="nofollow" attached?

No.
