Checking Whether A Blog is Dofollow or Nofollow?

What is a dofollow blog?

A dofollow blog means it allows search engine spiders to crawl and follow the link. For example, if you left a comment in a dofollow blog, then the search engine spiders will crawl your link (if you provided one) back to your site. Thus it will give some SEO benefits for your site.

What is a nofollow blog?

A nofollow blog means the opposite. It doesn’t allow search engine spiders to crawl and follow the link. Suppose you left a comment in a nofollow blog, the search engine spiders will not crawl your link and will not follow your link back to your site. Thus it won’t give you the SEO benefits for your site.

How to check whether a blog is dofollow or nofollow?

Actually it is pretty easy. If you use Internet Explorer, just follow the following steps to find out:

  • Open Internet Explorer browser
  • Type a blog url and hit enter
  • Click on a post title
  • Click on View from Internet Explorer’s menu bar
  • Choose Source
  • A source window will open, holding Ctrl and hit F to bring up a search box
  • Type nofollow in the text field
  • If you don’t see any in the comment section, then the blog is a dofollow blog

If you are using FireFox as your browser, then follow the following steps to find out:

  • Open FireFox browser

  • Choose Page Source

  • Every time when you create a new post you’ll need to update your sitemap. I just simply add my new post to my existing sitemap.

That is it. Some people like to place their sitemap in footer. That is because they believe that search engines will last crawl the sitemap before it exits the blog/website. I don’t know it is true or not but it is up to you to take the action.
