For quite a while I’ve been meaning to install the DoFollow plugin, and today I actually took the 30 seconds to do it. The whole idea behind this plugin is that it causes search engines to consider the link created in comments as a “real” link.
What does that mean to you? When you leave a comment on this blog with a link to your site/blog, search engines will actually follow the link back to your site (more juice for your blog). That usually doesn’t happen, as WordPress puts a “nofollow” tag around your site link when you leave a comment.
What does that mean for me? Probably not much. It will hopefully encourage you to leave comments here, and you’ll be rewarded if you do.
By the way, thanks to Randa Clay for the button design. All I had to do was change the color–cool!

Thanks. I’m already second guessing my decision to install it. Now I’m going to have to spend time deleting irrelevant posts from people who are trying to mooch off of my impressive PageRank.
Any issues w/ Big Brother Googlemeister with this?
Nope. They aren’t paid links, so it is in no way at odds with Big G’s opinion of how the internet should work.
And you, sir, just earned yourself a possibly relevant link from what will soon be a PR0 page.
interesting, I ran across this a month or so ago on another site, I think I’ll set this up on my space at some point when I’m not lazy, er I have time.
