I had already mentioned in the I love comments (I hate spam) post that I’m implementing plugin that removes WordPress’ NoFollow tags called DoFollow. The reason behind this is that I think people’s comments contribute to the building conversations in the blogosphere and Search Engines should be following these links as relevant pieces of information. No only does it help the contributor’s ranking in search engine’s eyes, but it allows the conversation to flow from one place to another in a truly organic fashion.
You’ll notice a new badge in my sidebar showing my support for the i-Follow Movement which is based around these principles. They have a set of images (and even a CSS version) for people to add to their blogs showing that if someone comments, their blog will allow Follows through to their contributors. Much recommended.
