Well do you?
Do you know what DoFollow is?
To explain DoFollow, we’ll begin with its arch-nemesis, NoFollow. Years ago blogs were overrun with spammers commenting in order to receive backlinks, which are used by Google to determine a site’s importance. To combat the spammers, a NoFollow tag was developed by Google to signify to web spiders to avoid any nofollowed links. It was designed to prevent spammers from getting importance passed to their links via comments on blogs.
Since then NoFollow has taken off and many sites use NoFollow on all their links, while some avoid NoFollow completely. Dofollow is a movement by bloggers to revert the flow of websites enacting NoFollow and reward real people for leaving real thoughtful comments by making their links DoFollow, which does signify to Google to follow the links, hence Do Follow.
Here at The 42nd Estate we use a mix of the two, but our comments are now 100% DoFollow. We appreciate the feedback you give us and reward you with some link love. We also use commentluv, which is a wordpress plugin designed to pull and post your latest article from your blog. Mr. Money over at My Last Name Means Money also uses DoFollow in combination with commentluv so go get some from him! While you’re at it, make sure to hop on over to Justin Wright’s blog and hit up his DoFollow Blog Directory, where you can list your blog, if you do DoFollow.
So, do you DoFollow?
