You will help my site to recover from google penalty
By ,

I have a website that is filled up by affiliate links.
Few hours ago i discovered that the nofollow plugin i was using did not apply a nofollow to all external links. I also discovered i had a google penalty. So, i think that my past no follow plugin (it was WP nofollow plugin) has not his job. I had numerous problem by the past with this plugin like 500 errors...

On the other hand, your plugin works well and does not slow down the website.

I required a reliable plugin that could put a nofollow quickly on every external links ( i guess i have hundreds of them).

I am used to google penalty due to external links and i know my website will recover thanks to your website.

Good job !

What kind of links does it not touch?
By , for WP 3.5.2

If I look at the source of my website MartianGuy I don't see 'nofollow' on social icons links. See this example:
<a href="https://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button" data-url="http://martianguy.com">Tweet</a>

What kind of links can this plugin not touch?

It works quite well, but....
By , for WP 3.5.1

It doesn't make difference between external and internal links in some cases:

<a href="http://www.cortometrajesonline.com/cortos-on-line/roger-gomez" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TEST 1</a>

<a href="cortos-on-line/roger-gomez" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TEST 2</a>

<a href="http://cortometrajesonline.com/cortos-on-line/roger-gomez">TEST 3</a>

<a href="http://cortometrajesonline.com/cortometraje/suspense/has-llamado-a-erika-2.html">TEST 4</a>

In TEST 1 and 2 it doesn't recognize the link as an internal one.
In TEST 3 and 4 it recognizes the link as an internal one.

I have to say that i have my site configurated to remove WWW: Making http://www.cortometrajesonline.com redirecting to http://cortometrajesonline.com

I want to say too that the plugin recognize the rel="dofollow" if it's written as an exception and it leaves that way.
