This is becoming quite a movement – it’s great.


This is the greatest thing to happen to blogs since…the internet.

I mean seriously, think of all the free link love, and also the comments per blog will go wayyy up!

Thanks and keep up the good work!


Rinsem’s Rink happily follows! Stop by for some link love today!


I think you made the right desision to follow the movement. I just found out that google is telling webmaster that they should include the nofollow in paid text links.
they can also report this too. I enjoy a good blog. but if I find they use nofollow I feel like it’s a kick in the teeth. So I want you to know that I will contenue to read your blog and be coming back. I think this is what reader want in a blog.


Chew on That loves it!

We’ll also use it with the upcoming launch of the new this week!!

Thanks for getting the word out


En se apoya la eliminación de la etiqueta nofollow en los comentarios del blog.


This is such an amazing concept. I have been able to do a lot of great reading because of do-follows that would help me find sites that I would never had known about. I think this gives all of the blogging community a tighter connection. What have you seen so far from it?


The more I read about this, the more I’m convinced I have to change my template. I have a blog on the new blogger platform. The template I currently have is a custom template and I really like it, but I can’t figure out how to take the “no follow” off. I think it may be because the code is not in English….

It’s just soo time consuming to replace the template, especially when I have 14 other blogs and…7 kids.


That kind of info is really valuable. I´ll change my template right now to follow comments.
Thanks a lot and feel free to visit me any day to have some fun.

This is a really interesting concept.
I’m sure the search engines are going to eventually compensate for this strategy, but for now it’s good.


This movement is catching fire day by day.


I don’t really understand this do follow movement, half the people who proclaim themselves as supporters seem to no follow anyway. Is it all an elaborate marketing ruse?


Lbug – many of us on the list did follow but then the list started being used by spammers and others wanting to game the system and they many of us – myself included changed our minds.
