    Give Reward to commentators – Use ‘NoFollow Free’ WP Plugin

    In one of my previous post, I mentioned about CommentLuv Plugin which pulls the title of the commentators blogs latest post and places its link just below the comment.

    Well the above plugin is rewarding/benefiting the commentator because, i am helping in giving some traffic and providing backlinks. But the backlink will be useful only if it is “NoFollow Free”.

    What is nofollow?

    nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target’s ranking in the search engine’s index. It is intended to reduce the effectiveness of certain types of search engine spam, thereby improving the quality of search engine results and preventing spamdexing from occurring in the first place.

    Read more on this here.

    Why should we use NoFollowFree Plugin?

    Wordpress by default, just like other blogging platforms, has automatically adds the “nofollow” tag to all links from user generated content such as comments and trackbacks.

    Why the U Comment, I Follow Badge?

    It’s one way to let your readers know that when they leave comments, they’re going to get link love. Sure, you can write a few post about it and even remind readers from time to time. But many will not see it. But the badge, that stays and your readers can see it.

    What’s next step?

    From now on, i want to reward my commentators by giving them a backlink so, that google can follow and there by enhance the page rank.

    Right now all urls in the comment section are “NoFollow Free” πŸ™‚

      Although this might increase you comment count I think this will effect your PR significantly. I guess it doesn’t matter if you don’t care about Google PR.

    2. Nihar says:

      What do you mean? Will PR Go down?

    3. jeet says:

      Nihar, which related plugin are you using?

    4. Nihar says:


      Look for Related post plugin in this post http://www.niharsworld.com/2008/03/17/must-have-wordpress-plugins/

      It is best plugin will be good SEO wise also

    5. ameo says:

      yup , having the do follow plugin with the comment luv will for sure bring many users in your blog ,

      and about this question

      there is no relation about that plugin and your pr .
      it just increase the PR of any one who comments on your blog

    6. Steve Yu says:

      Let me see if this will increase my blog pr.

    7. Nihar says:

      @Ameo you are right. But when you are giving backlink like this you may also get backlink from them through their post.

      @Steve yep try it… from last week i have seen diff getting comments more than before

    8. Hitesh says:

      yes your comments will increase and only comments which are good must be approved.

    9. Nihar says:

      Hitesh you are right….

    10. im using the nofollow plugin as well.

    11. Olivier says:

      This won’t affect your PR. It will just reward your commenters.

    12. Nihar says:


      Yes i know but will encourage more comments πŸ™‚

    13. WatchUOnline says:

      I don’t think you deserve to use that badge as You still use nofollow on comments!

    14. Nihar says:


      I remove nofollow only if a commentator leaves more than 5 comments.

      So, if you properly check you will see for some comments nofollow is removed.

    15. Wade Briggs says:

      It’s definitely a good way to increase your blog’s volume of quality comments but it will almost definitely increase the volume of low quality comments as well…As long as you moderate it though and take the time to filter out the garbage it can really benefit your website. In fact, people will start searching for your blog using “nofollow” as one of their search keyword terms. You’ll also get your blog listed in nofollow directories. So, you’ll get more comment content and more traffic.

    16. Nihar says:


      you are right. I need to figure out which comment is authentic and which one is intentional to just have their link here and moderate it.

    17. Maybe I should turn off ‘nofollow’ after a certain no. of comments as well. I have it dofollow even on the first count. Hmmm something to ponder over the weekend…


    18. Wade Briggs says:

      I’m not sure if I believe in the whole “minimum of 5 comments” for a nofollow free listing. This may still deter a lot of legitimate commentors from making quality first posts. Who knows, maybe not though.

    19. @Wade: I guess it really depends on what’s the intention of commenting in the first place. Are they a legitimate commentor making a quality commentary or someone chasing the backlink? The former doesn’t really care whether the blog is dofollow or otherwise while the latter cares for it that much.

      Just my two…


    20. Wade Briggs says:

      But why can’t a person who is “chasing the backlink” also make quality commentary? πŸ™‚

    21. Nihar says:

      @Wade, @Blog for beginners,

      Yes, If a person wants a backlink he/she can make 5 quality comments and get a back link πŸ™‚

    22. @Wade: You certainly have your point and yes, they can too..I suppose you belong to that group of people πŸ™‚


    23. Wade Briggs says:

      I definitely do belong to that group of people (although it has evolved from that on this blog) but I just hope that the general consensus within the blog world begins to shift from having a generally negative point of view on this topic to a more encouraging, positive view of it.

    24. Moolahking says:

      I think i’m quite confused with this NoFollow or DoFollow things.

      What’s the purpose of having these thing in our blog?

      Thanks for your attention.

    25. Wade Briggs says:

      No Follow is basically a tag that you can add to any links within your website. What this is intended to do is to tell a search engine crawler like Google Bot to not follow (or crawl) the link on your site with the “nofollow” tag. A lot of blogs today have adapted this tag to be used on all of links that commentors leave on their blogs to dissuade people from comment spamming them.

      I’m not sure if this is clear enough for you, hopefully it helps.

    26. @Wade: Couldn’t have said it better myself…

    27. Well, dofollow blogs get popular very quickly. πŸ˜€ I’m gonna remove nofollow from my blog soon. πŸ™‚

    28. Nihar says:

      @Thanks for the appreciation.

    29. You know what, Nihar..for some weird reasons, this “no follow free” is causing my adsense to disappear. Do you still use this plugin?


    30. I will use it but I heard in digital point forum that google will punish the rank of our blog if we have more links from our blog.
      What should I do, I am confused.

    31. I have to agree, offering these little incentives drastically improves the number of comments you may get. Although it may affect your PR, if you let to many pointless comments slip.


    32. Great thought, implementing this kind of system.

      When I had do follow enabled on my blog, I was getting LOADS more comments, although about half of them turned out to be kind of pointless.


    33. Nihar says:

      @Wheels And Wood, I agree. I am moderating comments carefully. Thanks for the suggestion.

      @General Specifics, My blog is no more a do follow blog. I stopped coz, i started getting lot of pointless comments.

    34. Great post on link love. Finally someone who practices what they preach.

    35. How has your PR/traffic been after implementing the plugin? Thanks and great job!!

    36. It gives lots of comments and lots of external link, this can mess with your google rank if you don’t properly menage your comments.

    37. I agree if you reward your readers they come back to your site, good tactic.

    38. techknowl says:

      Commenting also improves search engine rankings . Coz ,keyword density in the comments section is also important when a post is ranked in SEs.

    39. Dito says:

      Thanks i will use it my blog share2life.

    40. Rob says:

      This is very cool. I’ve not really understood the ‘no follow’ concept up until now, so I appreciate the explanation. I’m going to look into this plugin…. thanks!

    41. Atul says:

      Thanks a lot for this plugin
      I got a backlink πŸ™‚

    42. Ruchi says:

      This looks like a really good plug in will surely give it a try.
      It helps in building relationship with your commentators.

    43. Hey Glad to hear urs is a Do Follow buddy !

      A gr8 contribution to your beloved commentators ! πŸ™‚

    44. Rajandran says:

      I think a dofollow site achives more comments than a nofollow wp plugin

    45. Deepanshu says:

      Thanks for the tip, i will install commentluv on my blog soon πŸ™‚

    46. Denise C. says:

      So for blogs that indicate that “comments could be no follow free,” do commentators have to do anything in order to have the no follow attribute removed from their posts? (Aside from posting x # of times) E.g. I see the word “subscribe” with the rss symbol at the bottom of this page. Do I need to subscribe in order for you to remove the no follow tag from my post? On another blog that I’ve been pretty active in, it always says comments could be no follow free but it doesn’t say how.
