This plugin adds a simple checkbox in the insert/edit link popup for including nofollow attribute.
- What is nofollow?
When the search engine spider sees nofollow on the link, it does not follow that link to the new site; not count the link towards it’s popularity score in their ranking engine; and not include the link text in the relevancy score for those keywords. so, search engines will not penalize your site or blog for links that have nofollow on them.
- How do i nofollow links?
Just check the rel=”nofollow” option under the default open link in a new window/tab option.
I wish this plugin worked for me because the concept is great. It has some major flaws for me though: 1. When adding multiple links, there seems to be a caching issue with the plugin. For example. I add a link to Amazon for construction paper. All good. Then I try to add a link for scissors, and the plugin changes it to the construction paper link. I have to try multiple times to get it to stop changing it to the first link. 2. I can edit a link a couple of times, but often, if I have to edit a 3rd time, the link box won't even open when I click on the link. 3. When I make a link "no-follow", it changes ALL the links in my post to no-follow links. 4. When making a link open in a separate tab, adding the link often fails. I click apply, and the text does NOT become a hyperlink. I think this is also due to a glitch in the plugin. I know many other bloggers are having the same issues, so hopefully some tweaks can be made to the plugin.
When I insert a link, usually I don't press option: so the link is inserted without nofollow set. Bad things. It has to be set to yes by default, so I havent to go to the option...
