What are do-follow links and how to set to certain links?


Recommended Posts

By default, a link is dofollow unless specified otherwise with rel="nofollow"

If he is looking for 'dofollow' as the rel value then he's asking for something that, last time I checked, is not a valid rel value and is redundant anyway.

Add this tag to your hyperlink: rel="dofollow"

Got a link that shows 'dofollow' as a valid rel value?

I've just upgraded to v4 and all previous links I had in articles (formerly ip content, now pages) have been reset to no follow. This has not gone down well with the advertisers who paid for do follow links!

I switched off the 'no follow' option in AdminCP > System > Settings > Posting > "Links" tab but it hasn't made any difference to the existing links, which are still showing as no follow.

Is there a way for me to make all existing links do follow without having to edit every single article with a link in it?

I should also mention that there are still background rebuilds running from when I upgraded a few days ago, so I'm wondering if when the articles are reindexed perhaps this issue will be corrected?
