Let me explain you a bit what NoFollow links are and bellow I will teach you how to create a no follow link in WordPress.
They were introduced because some “good” guys saw that they could spam websites with links and their ranks would increase. I`m pretty sure that you saw a lot of shitty comments with links to other sites.
Before no follow being introduced, those links were helping spammers to boost their SEO rankings, but now no follow links are not counted by search engines and you will find them in the most common places like Wikipedia or Youtube etc.
A very good article regarding do follow and no follow links can be found here
If you think someone doesn`t deserve a do follow.
How can you create a no follow URL in WordPress for your website?
- Go to your WordPress Dashboard
- Select from the left menu “Plugins” => “Add New”
- Search for plugin: NoFollow Link
- “Install Now” and “Activate”
- Now go to your post/page where you want to add a no follow link. For example, I have a link on the WordPress plugin “NoFollow Link” and I will make it no follow.
- Select the whole hyperlink and then click the red button “no follow“
- If we check the source code for our link we will see that now it is a no follow link
If you want to help some website with their SEO rankings just use do follow links.
These days you need to deserve a link.
