    It will be helpful to get real traffic with bloggers and its members through do follow system.

    I have never, and I will never, put
    rel="dofollow" in any of my links, ever.

    The only links you would ever want rel="nofollow" on with a blog are those included in comments added to your blog by other people where you don't control the links.

    nofollow links for your site do not support to boost ranking is SERP its increase only traffic when blog is very popular. Blogger put all comment links in nofollow.

    Crawling by following the links is a non-issue if you have a good sitemap.
    And is spreading the page rank to your other pages really all that important?

    Nofollow are for not crawling a link by search engine. Dofollow allow search engine to crawl links. Nofollow tag we can use if we are using a link for reference not for crawl.

    I am not putting anything with the links of my regular posts...but I guess the standard is that WordPress treats all links as nofollow if left as they are...am I right or what?

    To increase SERP go with dofollow links, but nofollow links help in increasing traffic if the blog is popular.

    We can only get link juice from a do follow blog,because if we paste a link in no-follow then Google's crawler is not gonna crawl it and its useless for us for site which we linking back to.

    If you write an article and link to an external site I assume you find the linked site useful/valuable to the reader, and should therefore allow dofollow (ie. not use "nofollow")

    dofollow/nofollow in blog comments is a harder question...dofollow in their profile/name, and nofollow in the blog text maybe (to avoid unnecessary spam in blog comments, but still "reward" commentators for contributing to the discussion) ?

    I nofollow comment links, affiliate links, and any links that I can not "vouch" for. The nofollow attribute does not prevent a search engine from "following" the link, it just tells it not to pass link juice. If I were selling a banner ad or something I would also nofollow that link.

    My blogs are dofollow. All comments are moderated (the new commenters get into moderation), so there's no spam.

    There should be both Do Follow and No Follow links your blog to avoid getting spammed. If your Blog Comments are Do Follow Then there will be increase of visitors in your blog as they will try to comment in your post to promote their links but it should be controlled.

    Do follow is best anytime, if you're working in a legal way, do follow links should get you the best on the web. Make sure you make the links do follow if the link is legal one and not spammy or polluted link.

    Google says jump and you jump, .. stop stressing yourself with nofollow dofollow, do what you are pleased to do. When nofollow didn't existed how did you add links?
