How To Automatically Add Nofollow To All External Links In Bloggers Blog

The NoFollow tag was basically created to combat spam or scam links to a blog.

It tells search engine spiders not to follow a link to its destination.

This way, search engine spiders will be blocked from following the link with NoFollow tags.

But humans can follow the links with the Nofollow attribute.

The NoFollow tag when added to an outbound link prevent link juice or love to be passed to the linked destination.

This will help to comb the risks of been penalized by the search engine algorithms and will, in turn, help your SEO rating and SERP ranking.

Outbound links are very important on blogs, the more you link or been linked to by high authority websites the more search engines see your blog as a relevant, important or trustworthy blog.

But most of the times we get to link to low-quality blogs, from different source sometimes through Comment Box.

This will increase the risk of your blog been banned by Google algorithm because the link has low quality and its spammy in nature.

<!--Remove this if you are
already using any
jQuery.js file-->
<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
(function () { jQuery('a
([href*=""])').attr('rel', 'nofollow');
([href*=""])').attr("target", "_blank"); });
