What Are Dofollow Blogs

Do follow blogs are helping to increase traffics to your blog, because they allow you to comment or leave a link to your site.

But it also can make your site’s reputation going down if those links are a bit spammy.

WordPress blog by default has a no follow attributes. It is made to protect your blog from spammy or junk links and comments.

Here are my own experiences with this blog.

1. I installed commentluv plugins to let my commenters linking to their posts. This plugins is really useful if you can really be careful to pick which comments are spammy and which are not.
I end to remove this plugin, because i am not good to filter the unrelated comments, i am too nice ;)
2. Having unrelated, junk, and spammy links in your sites, are going to hurt your site’s reputations, and will hurt your page rank too (if you care about it).

So my tips are, if you let your blog to be a do-follow blog, you have to be extra careful and watch out for the links inside your blog, as a newbie, i used to be really happy when someone is commenting to my site.

One thing you can do, if you want to approve a comment and not the link, just delete the link, and approve the comment.
Here is a good video from Google webmaster why do-follow blogs can hurt your wordpress blog if you are not careful with your comments or links in your site.

    Nice post, But see the whole point of many people commenting on blogs is to get links. And if you make your blog a no-follow, then you people are unlikely to post comments. Now there is a downside to this as well. When people post comments on your site, they are contributing valuable content.Many comments are crappy and spam, but some guys do leave good comments. By making your blog nofollow, you end up driving away the good comments along with the bad ones. Therefore I think the view espoused in this article that as the administrator you should exercise control over the comments in you blog is the most appropriate way to blog. I have kept my blogs as dofollow for this specific reason. It does take a little effort, but i am willing the spend a few extra minutes for those few good comments.

    I thought as a blogger I should only worry about putting content on my site. But, I realized that I have to take care of other things as well. Found some spammy comments on my blog recently and I was wondering why they’re there. This is a very helpful post (especially about the comments part).

    This is indeed a very helpful post…I have a query though….I have a website with PR 4 related to cooking n mostly I get comments from my blogger friends who I know for long…..but mostly the PR links I get from those sites range from 0 to 2, very few 3 and 4….is that going to affect my PR rank and traffic ?
