WordPress DoFollow Blogs

Last updated on:

“Dofollow Blogs” are those that remove the common rel=”nofollow” tag from the website URL of those commenting on the site. This means that if you leave a comment on the blog along with a link to your site, you may receive more “link juice” from it to help your Page rank.

Why Do Blogs Dofollow?

Many bloggers or cms-powered sites have begun to allow users to submit “dofollow” links in order to encourage commenting on their sites. For some it proves to be very effective, while for others it as a negative impact on their SEO.

At one point WPExplorer was functioning as a dofollow comment blog, however, this lead to hundreds of daily comments, many of which were basically spam.

    It’s a big deal these days to unlock your comments and make them from no-follow to do-follow.

    I am really curious how can that happen in 2020 , because the plugins seem outdated.

      I think because of abuse and spam many blogs opt to simply not allow links at all. Though many forums still do allow for them – so perhaps that’s a better option if you’re considering using commenting as a link building strategy.
