Futility of ‘rel=nofollow’

NoNofollow logo

Joseph wrote an interesting post on the futility of rel=nofollow for blogs. Apparently he is not alone–there’s an anti-nofollow organization, NoNoFollow.net, that lists several valid objections to this technique. They also list a few plugins for WordPress which are supposed to disable the rel=nofollow “features”, but according to conversations with Joseph none of these are 100% effective. So I have followed his lead and manually edited my WordPress 1.5.2 code to remove the nofollow bits. I also added a no nofollow badge on the left column of my blog.

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
