No follow issues (and Yahoo News) (3 posts)

    OK, ever since I moved from Typepad to WordPress (and, believe me, I am very happy with WordPress except for this one thing) Yahoo News no longer scrolls my site (http://www.thepiratescove.us)

    I am pretty sure that the feeds are all working, and Yahoo News stopped the day I went live, feb 19, 2006 with WordPress.

    Could it be the automatic no follow tags? If so, is there a plugin or something that would allow them to scroll my site?

    Not sure I understand the question. But your RSS feed (which presumably is what Y! is grabbing for News) has naught to do with no-follow.

    Or am I misunderstanding?

    Well, I'm not sure if the feeds have anything to do with it, I have read some stuff at Yahoo regarding them picking up feeds. I have also read that with WP 2.0 and higher a "no follow" is automatically inserted in the coding.

    I would love for Yahoo news to be able to pick up my site, and the no follow thing is the only thing I can think of, unless anyone has any other ideas.
