Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior is now a “do follow” blog.
I wanted to let you know that we’ve taken the plunge into “do follow.” That is a change because WordPress blogs are “no follow” by default. In case you are wondering…
Why “do follow”?
Here is a brief explanation of why “do follow” is an issue for blogs. Here is a longer article addressing a few more questions about “do follow.” Everything that I have done on this blog has been with an open hand. I want to do anything that I can contribute to the blogging community or the growing RA awareness movement. If we were all “do follow,” it would be a better blogging world.
It’s easy to do
What’s the point of “do follow”?
When we comment on one another’s blogs, the “no follow” tag stops the search engines from passing on any recognition or value to the linker. “Do follow” removes the “no follow” tags so that the links function the way the internet was meant to function, with an unbroken chain or flow of authority.
The usual “do follow” badge has reciprocating arrows to show that “do follow” links in are effect a Thank you to commenters. And it’s good to say Thank you. The people who comment on the Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior blog help make it a really cool site.
If there is a spam problem
Spam will be blocked. Spam disguised as invaluable comments will be deleted. Don’t bother dropping links here.
So, how about you? Are you a “do follow” blog yet?
