Very good
By ,

I used several nofollow plugin and this one did always the job.
Regarding what was said in a previous comment, this plugin logically detects external a href links. It does not detect iframe and script. This is what is expected because googlebot isn't interested in iframe and script.

So, it is possible to put a nofollow on affiliate links case by case.

On the other hand, i have used "WP nofollow post" and i faced issues that were not acceptable. For instance, once on one update WP nofollow post generated a 500 error on every single page with a link. WP nofollow post also missed some links and i still don't know why today. However, a nofollow plugin is very important today because of google penalty.
So it has to work.

Only downside of outbound links manager, we cannot change the number of displayed links on one page, so when we have many links we have to go through every page and it takes a long time.

Not all links were identified
By , for WP 3.8.1

Installed this to add nofollow to a couple hundred follow outbound links for a customer who got pinged by google. Right away I noticed the plugin did not identify all links. It did work properly on the link that were identified, but some many not identified it was not worth using. Some posts it did, other it did not. Could not see anything wrong with the way I was using it. Trying another plugin.

Plugin throws Fatal error
By ,

The plugin used to work fine for me , I had to deactivate the plugin for some reason, but when I try to install it again, it throws fatal error and no idea why !! have been trying to fix this any help would be appreciated !! however, if the plugin works, it is very useful and did help me in the past to find many unwanted and spammy outbound links within my site.

Conflict with TablePress
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is a great plugin in that it gives you a complete picture of all your outgoing links and where they are located. It's easy to spot which links are follow and nofollow and it's easy to change each link.

I would have given it five stars, except for the fact that it causes tables created with TablePress (another great plugin) to crash. Lucky for me, TablePress' developer is a great communicator and was able to restore my tables within the hour.
