U Comment I Follow

on Sunday, August 10, 2008

You may have noticed I've added a "U Comment I Follow" badge on the right side of my blog. You may have seen this also on other blogs and are wondering what the heck this is. Randa Clay has a great article about this. In a nutshell, many blog platforms are set up so that a piece of code is inserted where there is a link in a comment. Then search engines will not acknowledge that link while they are crawling the internet. What does that mean for you? Less link love. What can you do to remove such code from your blog? Then check this great article out.

I have removed the nofollow from my blog template so when you leave a comment with a link back to your blog, that your link will get some love. Are you the next fellow blogger to join in on and removing the nofollow from your blog?

Zhu, nice to meet you also! I think I found your blog originally via BlogExplosion (can't honestly remember) and found it rather interesting. I find your blog interesting, we (the hubby and I) would love to move to Canada.

Irtiza, you need to log into Blogger, go to your template. Make sure you save a backup, just in case, on the right hand side there will be a box that says expand widget or similar. Make sure that box is checked. Then do a control - F to find the words "rel='nofollow'. Remove only that, nothing before or after. There will be a total of two in your template, one for the actual blog and the other for your links. Save and you should be good to go!

Thanks, I am going to try to do this too

Ann said...

Great to hear! The more people that we can get on the "bandwagon" with u comment i follow the better!

Remember people, that if you post an anonymous comment, that you are NOT going to receive any "love" to your blog! Also post quality comments, not just "Nice Blog".

I have done that with my blog as well. It seems like the least a blogger can do to help grow the community and network of other bloggers that take the time to read & comment on our sites.

Hey there! I never had much of an interest in going to Italy until I read "Eat, Pray, Love" and Gilbert made it sound so charming. I'm glad I ran across it! I run a letter writing web site so if you get any cool letter writing stories or funny tales of the Italian postal service, please send them to me!

Your comments still show up as nofollow even though you said you have removed the "no follow" link. All the links are highlighted in "red" with "seo for firefox" meaning that none of the comments follow. Love your idea, as I think blogs should be do follow, but unfortunately your is still no follow.

Ann said...

James, thanks for making me aware of this. Thought that when I changed to this new template, when I was updating everything that I had also taken care of that. Will check that out and try to correct ASAP. Thanks again sir!

James said...

No problem at all!

Thx for your article :D
very ice

Mike said...

Ann I know James mentioned this but your links show as no follow in Firefox. If you use it just right click on a link and a small window tells you the status of the link. Mine for example show as NO FOLLOW.

I wrote an article yesterday about this with some tutorial links.

Kind Regards

Mike

Hello, I've just found your blog on Busto Arsizio. My Dad was an escaped POW in WWII (1943) and stopped in your town for 1 1/2 days. He was helped by Fr. Amborgia Gianotti,Yda Bogni, Bernardo Fu Giovanni Formenti, ans Adalgisa Fontana Gussom. Yda and Adalgisa sheltered him for the time' Bernardo Fu Giovanni Formenti helped the priest. And Fr. Amborgia Gianotti helped them on their way to Switzerland. I've been looking all over the "web" for pictures of the Church of S. Eduardo in Busto Arsizio and also Fr. Gianotti. Any help you might give would be appreciated! Thanks,
Irene Hahn
