But that’s not useful everytime, specially if you are reviewing or writing tutorials on some good websites and services. In this tutorial we will explain you a very easy procedure of getting control over follow/no-follow link relationships.
We will be using Follow Nofollow Control plugin. The mechanism of this plugin is, first it enables you to choose follow or no-follow relationsship and set it default for your website. Secondly, if you choose follow as default then you can add domain exceptions means certain domains which you like no-following OR if you choose no-follow as default relationship then you can add domains to exclude for do following.
In easy words, it provides you 4 different link controlling functions:
- You can set all external links to nofollow
- You can set all external links to nofollow except some domains which you add as exceptions
- You can set all external links to follow
- You can set all external links to follow except some domains which you add as exceptions
