IPS adds a copyright link to every page of the communities.
To better SEO, I would like to add a "nofollow" directive to the link. I don't want to remove the link, only add the "nofollow"meta tag for SEO purposes.
I have tried to search the code on the template, but could not find it. I guess it's hard embedded on php code.
Anyone has tried the same thing?
I'm not sure if its permitted to change it (I realise that's not a visual change) but it might be considered a 'change'
Yes its hardcoded in a file, I won't mention which one...
Could IPS team make it clear?
I guess there is no violation of the terms just add a meta tag "no follow". It's not a copyright removal, not the link removal. Just a search engine directive.
Anyone could help about this matter?
That's part of the reason I've not posted saying "open this file and ..." , I'd want the official answer first really before I did that.
It may be best to submit a ticket in the Client Area for the 'official' answer on this.
Personally I find it odd that you cant even affix the referral ips link to it. AFAIK the referral money goes towards the licenses anyway.
I'd have to guess its simply a 'no change' rule. Although it might seem a bit harsh I guess its to avoid opening a 'can-o-worms' in what is / is not acceptable to change.
You can always buy "Copyright Removal" in your client area.
I don't want to remove the copyright. Just do some SEO.
The copyright term is:
Addind a nofollow meta tag will not modify the copyright notice or label.
It's an invisible modification just for machines, not for users.
The rules are clear on this, as they are stated below.
modify and/or remove any copyright notices or labels on the Software on each page (unless copyright output removal license is purchased) and in the header of each script source file
If you have a SEO recommendation you can submit this in the feedback area as well for review.
For my understanding copyright notice or label is based on the reading, not on the meta information. But thanks a lot for the answer, I will suggest as feedback!
