Is My WordPress's Blog In Risk Because Of External Links In Post Comments?

True it is noted that many post who comment, view such means not just a way of expressing their thought on your post, but also as and opportunity to promote their own blog-post and surf like that.

But if you notice to many links on comment on your WordPress blog-post, you should not fear that Google Search will view link as a violation of their link scheme. This is because, WordPress automatically adds the rel="nofollow" attribute to all links in a comment. Thus Googlebot (Google search engine web clawer) and other search engine clawer too will not claw such links.

For example: A link which someone create in the comment box with typically looks like Visit my <a href="">discount pharmaceuticals</a> site. will automatically be transformed to Visit my <a href="" rel="nofollow">discount pharmaceuticals</a> site. by WordPress.

So you need not worry that your blog is in risk from loosing credit because of too many external links in your post's comments section. WordPress is in the only blog software maker that is making use of this technique to protect their users, others such as:
  • Brad Fitzpatrick - LiveJournal
  • Dave Winer - Scripting News
  • Anil Dash - Six Apart
  • Steve Jenson - Blogger
  • Stewart Butterfield - Flickr
  • Anthony Batt - Buzznet
  • David Czarnecki - blojsom
  • Rael Dornfest - Blosxom
  • Mike Torres - MSN Spaces
have also started using this technique.
