NoNoFollow plugins and policy

As part of my support for the NoNoFollow movement, I initially decided to use the easiest DoFollow WordPress plugin there is by Semiologic. However, after just learning about bad neighborhood links, I decided on using a different plugin called NoFollow Case by Case so that I have a greater control over the outgoing links in the comments.

So far I only used it on less than 5 of the mere 1000+ comments I get in this blog due to suspicious back linking. Sooner, though, I feel I should have some sort of comment policy to tell people not to take the comment section in my blog too lightly. I know some of you, particularly one or two who are in the Top Commentators section, are taking advantage of the nofollow option to promote your affiliate/product sites. Don’t overdo it, ’cause if you do, don’t come complaining and spamming me. I wouldn’t care, ’cause this is my blog and I do as I very well please.

  1. LOL – get em. I hope you’re not talking about me 🙂

    We have the same problem on our blog and get tired of constantly deleting spam. If you don’t have something to say about the post then take your s3x films, Vi@gra and cial1s (sp?) and find a blog that talks about whatever you’re pitching. You’d do yourself a favor … never mind the favor you’d be doing for the thousand bloggers everyday.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      Btw, hope you don’t mind me editing a few words in your comments, to avoid the search engines from picking them up as search keywords on my blog. I’ve had enough weird search results coming to my blog with keywords of Harry Potter’s and some horse’s private parts to deal with.

  2. Lorna,

    Sorry about that. I should have realized that those words will bring you up in places you don’t want to be. Sorry for any inconvenience.

  3. I hope my commenting here isn’t a problem here either. Just shoot me an e-mail if you want me to stop!
