I recieved a comment, requesting a post about how to add the “dofollow” tag to comments in wordpress, and here it is:

It’s really simple actually, to remove the “nofollow” tag from links in comments in wordpress.

All you need to do, is installing a plugin called “Dofollow” from THIS website.

Then all you need to do, is to follow the instructions and activate the plugin =)

In case you want to know why you should do this, listen up:

– So-called “Backlinks” to websites counts as “votes” for a website for the search engines. So having loads of links back to your website, boosts your rankings in various search engines. This is called “off-page” SEO, and is essential for your website to rank well.

– To maximize the effect of each link, you should make sure they are as relevant as possible. As an example, a link from a “spa” website, to your “dog training” website, will have an extremely low value to the search engines – unless it’s from a page on the site about “spa for dogs”. In addition to this, you should make your links into “ancor text” for keywords you want to rank higher on.

Anchor text is basicly a word, disguised as a link, and looks like the link called “this” above, which directs you to the “dofollow” plugin website. That means I helped them to rank on the word “this” in the search engines. Oh my how nice of me! I’ll help them furthermore by adding a link called “dofollow plugin” – Which actually helps them, because they most likely want to rank for that keyword.

There are also many other factors that plays a great role in the category “linkbuilding”, but I will cover them later. For now, just focus on what you have read now.

Good luck with your linkbuilding efforts! May great rankings, and loads of traffic come your way!
