Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » add rel=”nofollow” to links

  • Resolved ivandelajara


    It would be great for improve the crawl budget to add rel=”nofollow” (individually and optional) to all the links (specially to pages). Thanks.

    For example:

    Menu with privacy policy, cookies and legal links in the footer

    All those links should have rel=”nofollow” because its better to configure noindex,follow metas in them…

    I mean for internal links… Increase the number of urls will decrease the crawl budget.

    I think that the yoast badge should add a new option and yoast a new function:

    – index/noindex
    – follow/nofollow
    – add rel=”nofollow” to links to point to this post/page/whatever

    And be able to identify what pages are configured with it:


    That would be perfect because i wanted to create some plugins and did not found a way to know if a post is indexable or not…
