Are you using a plug-in to add the “nofollow” attribute to the links?

ya im using a plug-in seo internal link to add the “nofollow” attribute to the links

And you’re sure that you have it set correctly?

Actually, now I look at the plugin page, it was last updated three years ago, and seems to have some issues. You might be better off looking for another plug-in.

ya i have set it correctly

Well, you can try the support forum for the plug-in, but it doesn’t look as if anyone is answering it. As I said, I think you’d be better off looking for another plug-in, rather than wasting time on one which doesn’t work and isn’t maintained.

ya i have set it correctly

sorrry im using SEO Smart Links plugin

Well, that’s even older. rolleyes Last updated four years ago, and no response to posts on the support forum.

This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress . It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Find a current plug-in with good reviews.

(I seem to remember you have had problems with sites being hacked. You need to keep your site, including your plug-ins, updated to reduce the risk of future attacks.)

ya you people are supporting lot ,can you suggest best plugin

Yes, There is a another plugin that you can use for rel=nofollow.
Plugin name: Nofollow for external link

Hope that helps…!!

I use ultimate nofollow plugin for this purpose.

Why would we need a plugin for no-follow links? I think it is too easy to add it in the code, and I’m not even a programmer. Can someone help me out to understand why should I use a plugin?

If you are able to do this without a plugin, that is probably best, as some plugins come with a perfromance overhead.

We are talking about a CMS here. A CMS gives a layer of abstraction from the actual code, this gives users who do not know code the ability to make edits to a site’s content, without needing to know how to code, that is kind of the purpose of a CMS.
However one down side to that is without working with the actual code, you have less control over it. Therefore to gain more control over things like specific attributes, without access to the raw code, it may require an additional plugin.
