Add title and nofollow to links in WordPress • WordPress Help

As you may know, sadly, since WordPress 4.2 in the link insertion window there is no longer a field to add a title to the links but simply the visible text. But everything has a solution, with some skill or plugins …

What's more, what would you think about adding the relation nofollo w easily to the links? ? great, is not it? Not only for SEO issues but also for usability.

Well more than simple, you just have to install and activate the plugin Tittle and nofollow for links and from that moment to add a link to a text , in the pop-up window, in addition to the field for the link and the text, you will also have another text area to add the field " title " and a box if you want the link to be nofollow .

The difference between before and after is important, and link management allows you much better.

Nofollow link in certain categories or tags

There are times when you use a specific WordPress category or tag to post entries full of external links where, if you pass, you may be doing losing authority to your site as far as search engine optimization is concerned .

You know, of course, that you can add the attribute " nofollow " to a link to not share positioning with the linked site, and even add " nofollow "To all the external links of your site but would not it be more reasonable to add the" nofollow "only to specific categories or tags?

Surely, and also it is very simple. For the categories you just have to add the following code to your specific plugin or to the file functions.php of the active topic:

What does this code do ?, then add the attribute " nofollow " to any link that appears in the content of the entries in the categories you specify (with your ID number) on line 4 (in the example the category with ID number 45)

All external links nofollow and target blank

If within your SEO strategy you have defined that the external links of your publications are opened in a new window / tab and also have the attribute " nofollow " the best thing is that you automate the task

And nothing better for that than using the plugin SEO Nofollow External that, automatically and with nothing to configure, makes the following changes to your links:

Install and go, more easy impossible.

Create a blogroll without follow-up ("nofollow")

 blogroll "src =" "width =" 250 "height =" 250 "srcset =" 250w, /blogroll-150x150.jpg 150w "sizes =" (max-width: 250px) 100vw, 250px "/> </a> In an article published a few days ago in this wonderful blog, <a href= Fernando told us possibility of including the tag rel = "nofollow" for all the outgoing links that we had in our blog.

The truth is that doing this supposes giving many clues to the google robots, to indicate that what we are really doing with our blog is pure SEO and very possibly penalize us with the consequent decrease in the positioning ranking of our website, which is why I at least, I do not know revo to use this option so drastically .

As far as I could read on the web, it is not very clear how the use of the label affects the positioning of a web page rel = "nofollow" within the links of our web pages, although what does seem clear, or at least there is consensus, is that there should be a certain balance between inbound and outgoing links on our site web .

And given that the tag rel = "nofollow" indicating to the robots of google that it is a link for people and consequently should not be followed by the search engines we can use it to try to achieve that equity.

Before going any further, I would like to clarify what is a link " nofollow " for it nothing better than a small example.

Suppose we have a page to web a link similar to the one that appears below (actual link that goes my website about cruises ):

Add an attribute rel = "nofollow" means to transform that expression into the next:

It's that easy and simple.

In relation to this topic, I was asked the idea of ​​how to include this attribute in my WordPress blogroll both in the site that I mentioned earlier, and in another that I have on the Organic Law of Data Protection since in these places there are links to ot ros blogs and normally we may be interested to add this condition to them.

To try to get this, I went to the category "links" of the desktop of WordPress and I could not see any option that would allow me to do this . I started surfing the net and I found a code, with which this goal is achieved and I want to share with all of you.

To achieve this possibility, all you have to do is copy and paste the code that follows in the file functions.php of the theme of WordPress that you are driving, or paste it in the file of the plugin of functions option this last one that is the one that I use and I recommend the readers.

In this easy and convenient way, you have added the attribute rel = "nofollow" to all the links that appear in your blogroll . I hope it has helped you and once again, I want to finish the writing of this post, by publicly acknowledging the work of Fernando by showing us every day on this website new and interesting news about WordPress . Until next time, bye.

    Some socialbookmarks with dofollow links • WordPress Help

    One of the main concerns that bloggers have is getting links, the linkbaiting . A simple and quick means are the socialbookmarks (social bookmarking services), or exchange pages of web pages among the users of the system.

    To facilitate the task, here is a small list of dofollow socialbookmarks.

    Be good and do not fall into spam, will not they also change to nofollow these sites .

    If you know more, do not hesitate to write it in the comments to expand the list.

    WordPress Help DoFollow • WordPress Help

    But as they comment in the blog DoFollow

    In the early days of blogs many spammers used them to send their trash to these places.

    That way I got advertising and upload their search engine rankings. Google took note and created the nofollow tag. The links with this tag were not taken into account by search engines.

    WordPress and almost all blog platforms automatically inserted this tag in the comments of all their blogs .

    This means that the links you put in the comments are not indexed by Google or count to raise the position of your site.

    But did this stop the spammers? It seems that no, if you consult your blogs you will see how much spam still comes to you even when you have the nofollow tags

    What works for spam is the plugin Akismet . [19659003] A problem with nofollow is that there are many comments that contribute value and information that are not taken into account by search engines. And many people do not contribute their grain of salt to the conversation in the comments since in the end it stops seeing the fact of commenting.

    Therefore there is a group of people who would be motivated to comment more and who can collaborate with your blogs contributing their points of view.

    On the other hand it is possible that you have users of your blog that comment often and that you contribute an important value to the blog . Surely you would like to reward and give weight to your links is a way to do it.

    And in WordPress Help we are in favor of rewarding participation, of valuing the links that "add value "To the debate on the posts, and that's why we have enabled the dofollow value in the comments to the entries.

    Not only that, but we are targeting the dofollow blog directory where you can find a lot of other splendid blogs that have removed this restriction. In our case we use the plugin Nofollow Free which allows you to configure how you want to "release" the links to your liking, being able to reward the readers who comment the most, not the first one that appears, as well as to links posted by registered users, but there are other ways to do .

    If you want to join the increasingly long list of dofollow blogs you can sign up . As you can see below there are very good blogs and with a high PR that use this system and have been compromised, here are a few with PR4 and PR5:

    And many more, just need yours.
