If you have your own blog or you write article to particular blog then some time you need to add external website link. Google find those external links while crawling your site for search engine optimization and unfortunately those websites (you have added as external link in your blog) get some ranking  juice from Google.

To prevent this you have to put a extra attribute for each of the external link “nofollow” e.g <a href=”http://domain.com/” rel=”nofollow”>some-domain</a>

From google official blog

“From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel=”nofollow”) on hyperlinks, those links won’t get any credit when we rank websites in our search results.”

So, by using nofollow attribute for all the links of your website you can prevent this, but if you have a wordpress blog with thousands or more posts and each post contain external links, then adding the nofollow attribute for each post that would take a lot of time. That is such a big headache 🙁

If you are in such a problem, then you can use our plugins Nofollow for external link that can really help you to save your valuable time.

All you have to do is, just download the plugin by clicking here and activate it in your wordpress website/blog following the instructions inside the readme.txt file.

Once you have activated the plugin, no matter how many posts in your blog, weather it is thousands or millions it will automatically add rel=”nofollow” attribute for all the external link in your posts. Note this plugins will only add rel=”nofollow” attribute for external link not for any internal link.

Also this plugins will automatically add target=”_blank” for all the external link of your blog post, so that the entire external link will open in new tab / window.

Hope this plugins will be really helpful for you, and I am eagerly waiting for your valuable feedback regarding this plugins.
