    If you install your own wordpress instance you can install a plugin that will do follow comments based on a few requirements.

    you will need to install the plugin that the user above me mentioned. Unfortunantly their will be a lot more spam messages through your blog by incorporating that plug in. Just an FYI

    You may get more spam, just add a captcha and keep on top of your moderation.

    Yup, but as precautionary measures, these plugins will help filter out and stop the spam:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/akismet/ - Amazing spam filter with pretty good accuracy rates. I've got an accuracy of 95% on my blog.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-ban/ - A great tool to ban ip addresses, country codes and so forth. I use this to ban entire countries from accessing my blog, and also to ban IP addresses of spammers.

    You can always manually remonve the rel=no follow by editing the comment after it is posted.

    If all entries are manually approved then either way is good. If you automatically approve all comments, then you may be in trouble!

    You can install a plugin which will make your blog do-follow instead of no-follow
    and then you can invite a lot of traffic to your blog and you must only accept non-spam plugins


    good luck

    The keywordluv & commentluv plugins combined with dofollow will get you a lot of traffic. But you will have to moderate a lot.

    Actually, the nofollow attribute is added at theme level. Using a plugin to change that is fairly pointless unless you can't be bothered sorting through where it is in the theme files (usually comments.php).

    you have to make your comments do follow by installing a plugin. It's easy to do but be prepared for dealing if hundreds of spam comments each day. Word press is an excellent peice of software though.

    As others have said, getting rid of nofollow will mean that you'll get a ton of spam comments. Be prepared to spend a lot of time moderating the comments, even with a spam filter plug in.

    If you find time to moderate your comments and ready to deal with tons of spam, go with do follow; otherwise, no follow is just okay

    Making your comment no-follow does not guarantee SPAM FREE blog. You will still receive spam posting either way. The best bet is to moderate all comments. Even though that is a bit of some extra work, but it keeps your blog in good taste for human visitors as they won't have to deal with junk articles posted by SPAM-BOTS.

    Like have been suggested, i recommend CommentLuv and KeywordLuv plugins for your do-follow. You can also add Commenter plugin.

    I am not permitted to post link yet, I would have included the links to commenter, but you can easily get it from wordpress.org

    I think it is a great way to help your readers if they comment on your posts. You are giving back to the community so I am fine with a do follow blog. Greg Ellison

    Adding the plugin mentioned above will remove the nofollow attribute.

    You will have to let akismet filter the spam and moderate the remaining comments.

    If you let be known that you have dofollow enabled you will get more traffic.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Nofollow

    Wordpress even tells you to use plugins.

    I beg to differ. according to the wordpress site:
    WordPress 1.5 and above automatically assigns the nofollow attribute to all user-submitted links

    That is incorrect. There is no attribute called 'dofollow'. 'Dofollow' is the term generally used to describe the absense of 'nofollow' attributes.

    Definitely true!

    I suggest that if you would want to make your blog, a not "nofollow" blog. Better get some good spam filter plugin that can easily help you to sort out tons of spam comments.

    One plugin that I use is Akismet. And I guess it is really a very awesome plugin.

    If you mean to create more blogs to add your own links, why not include them as blogroll? You don't need to get headache of do-following comments.
