Much ado about nofollow: The Perishable Press Dofollow Series

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “Oh great, not another article about WordPress nofollow!!” Well, if that sounds like you, I have good news! This is the last post (at least for awhile, anyway) concerning all things nofollow, dofollow, and even no-nofollow, for that matter. In fact, this post isn’t even about nofollow! It’s simply a summary of the articles I have written involving nofollow-related topics. The articles fit together so well, one might suppose they were planned deliberately as a bona fide series. Hmmm.. I’ll leave it up to you to decide..

    Great list of articles about your switch and also information on how I can switch my sites to dofollow.

    Thanks for the feedback — glad to be of service!

  3. Great job on making the list of articles :) This post will definitely be in my bookmarks.

    I’ve been thinking for a few weeks now on whether to implement the Do-Follow plugin on my blog. I’m scared that Google may penalize my blog. Though on the bright side, utilizing this plugin might get me more visitors.

    Which is more important…Google or visitors?

    Come on, that’s a trick question ;) For me, the answer is easy — I do this for the sheer and utter joy of it all. I love to learn, work online, and share ideas — I would continue doing this even if Google dropped me entirely! On the other hand, I do have other sites that require a more measured approach, perhaps there is a balance to be found somewhere in the middle..?

  5. Thanks for the the list; people are a lot more saavy about no follows these days but then again thats got more to do with link purchases than anything. People really want that link juice!

    Absolutely, Mike — and it’s just going to get worse, especially as Google continues to tighten the vice on paid links. Link juice is like the currency of the Internet — everyone craves it!
