[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] No follow tag links (4 posts)

    I used to use the fantastic Robots Meta plugin but then switched to this, WordPress SEO.

    One feature I can't find is the ability to nofollow my tags. I have lots of tags and am wasting linkjuice. I can no-index them, but why not nofollow?

    Am i just missing it?

    Did you check the advanced tab in the SEO toolbar near the bottom of your posts/pages?

    Yes, I checked that but as far as I can see it only applies to the post itself, not to the tags.

    In any case what I want to do is to stop the tags being followed across the whole site. Robots Meta (the predecessor to this) allowed that but not this.

    If you are not indexing tag pages, as this allows, then there is no point in allowing your linkjuice to flow to them.

    There's a setting to turn off globally under the SEO settings, but I don't know if that would interfere with your other plugin.
