No-follow User Generated Outoing Links
Category: On-page Value
Frequency of Checking: Monthly
Importance Level: 3/5
No follow links to external sites that are added by end users like Blog comments. Link only to good sites. Linking to good site can improve ranking.
- Do’s: Check the outgoing links from all the important pages (and if possible all the pages). There are applications like Xenu that can produce the list of external links from the site. Add nofollow to all the links that are going to irrelevant sites.
- Don’ts: It is my personal advice not to add nofollow to good sites. After web is about referring visitors to right pages why go un-organic by doing such things.
- Quality check.
- Progress check.
