Anyways, lets get to the business. Some bloggers already displays their list of users who follows their blog and i am one of them -- my followers get a follow link which is counted towards their page rank because i removed the nofollow tag. It's a great incentive to your followers isn't it.
HOW TO CHECK NOFOLLOW TAG?
Here's my instruction of how to easily check if the link is nofollow: Right click to any image of my "Blogging friends" then scroll down until you find the "PROPERTIES" click it and it will open to new window which called Element Properties if the link is nofollow you will see under the link properties relation: nofollow if the no follow is remove you won't see this tag.
I hope i did not confuse you, gush! i think i confused my self with my explanation. just let me know so i can elaborate more.
HOW TO REMOVE THE NO FOLLOW?
Easy, just follow this simple step and your done. Important: save your template before you start.
- Go to DASHBOARD - LAYOUT - EDIT HTML
- Tick Expand Widget Templates then hit ctrl+F type Followers1 or you can type rel='nofollow' (The dis-advantage of this is that you might have other nofollow that you don't want to remove instead of just the friends list) it depends of which your comfortable of doing.
- Then, look for this code rel='nofollow' and remove them
- Preview and if it loaded alright then save.
It is great to check the result if the nofollow tag is being removed -- just follow the same explanation above about how to check nofollow tag and if you won't see the relation: nofollow anymore then your doing a great job.
Congratulation and inform your reader so that you will get more followers.
