Fix NoFollow

Simple plugin to fix the latest Google algorithm update. It will add `rel="nofollow"` and `target="_blank"` to all EXTERNAL links

With Google's latest alorithm update, sites are now penalised for either offering paid backlinks or guest posts. This plugin simply fixes this by adhering to Google's recommended action:

Recommended action
Identify paid or otherwise inorganic links by using rel="nofollow" or redirecting to an intermediate page that is blocked by robots.txt.
Remove any problematic links from your site.
When you're satisfied that your site follows Google's Webmaster Guidelines, submit a reconsideration request.
For an updated list of manual actions currently applied to your site, visit the Manual Actions page. If no manual actions are listed, there is no longer a need to file a reconsideration request.


  • Adds rel="nofollow" and target="_blank" to all EXTERNAL links only.
  • Internal links stay as they are.
  • Next version will see the option to exclude links.
