By default WordPress blog comment links are using the “no follow” attribute meaning the comment links won’t get any PR juice. Using a dofollow plugin you can suppress this “no follow” attribute and make it into a “do follow” blog.

WordPress is an easy to use CMS especially for the non techies. You can almost find a plugin for all your work.

The steps involved in making your blog comment links into “do follow” links using a WordPress plugin are as follows.

1. Install a do follow plugin such as Semilogic dofollow plugin. I have already written a post on how to install a wordpress plugin which will be useful if you want to know how to install the dofollow plugin.

2. Activate the dofollow plugin and you are done.

3. Now all your blog comment links will turn “do follow” i.e the search engines will follow those links and give them some link juice.

Alternatively you can also edit the comment template php code. By removing the “no follow” attribute you can get the same effect such as using a dofollow plugin. But then you will have to do it everytime you update the wordpress version.  Dofollow plugin makes life easy from that perspective.

Lazy Domaining is a now a “do follow” blog. Anyone who makes or/and have already made quality comments will be rewarded with some link juice. Hope it helps.

    I have thought about making my blog dofollow but I already get enough spam to delete. Have you noticed an increase in comments since your change, or did the change just start today?

  3. I thought akismet was doing the trick but as of right now, I’ve blocked about 46 spam comments. I don’t even delete them anymore. They don’t show up on my blog unless I approve them. Good article though.

  4. Great post. I have no problem giving out backlinks to people who make useful blog comments and encourage discussion. I think I will be opening up several of my sites to dofollow comments in order to encourage fresh discussion. I’ve had pretty good success so far, and I do exactly as Dennis does, I just ignore comments that are spam and bulk delete them later.

    Kudos for the dofollow!

    @Mojito Recipe
    Sure there are other plugins but i am using Semilogic plugin.

    @Greg
    Somedays i do get a spike in comments like today. I will have to wait for a few more days and see if it is because of “dofollow”. As far as the comments are quality ones i don’t have any issues. Would be glad to send some link juice.

I agree with the principle of “dofollow”, I just wish that it was not abused so much which clutters up a blog with spammy rubbish. Are we allowed to hang spammers yet?
