Deactivating my NoFollow Links
Deactivating my NoFollow Links
I was horrified, amazed, and angry to discover blogger.com automatically makes all links in the comments of this blog, my blog, NoFollow links.
I hope all links put in comment are follow links now in this blog
Yep, let us..
Throw the baby out in the bath water.

I was asked by this guy Igor to post a Follow Link, or not make a NoFollow link and give a site he seems to work for juice.
My first thought, when I learned what this was,
- Why in the world would I put a link on my site if I did not give it juice? - What an extremely selfish and controlling thing to do! This is the secret to the internet, make the small guy succeed and you succeed. (Google allows all, Yahoo made too many rules, they lose.)
Then in their efforts to stop the spammer, they also stop the good people from getting juice in my comments. Ok, I will learn how to stop the spammers, and allow the Mom and Pop sites of the world to post without having to be high powered techies.
If I make it easy for everyone, I can learn how to stop the crazy spammers. What happens in the world is this, the best site are often thrown out of the game for a technical problem, they do not know much about the internet, therefore they are penalized. One huge and overwhelming reason I am making HoboHideOut.com is because of this… the best hotels are not on Hotel sites. I want to include all, and give them a good SEO made page, even when they do not understand what I am doing.I want a GREAT Hotel, I do not find them on the Internet.
This sucks. Sometimes I find them on Mom and Pop sites, just nice made by nice people pages.
Ok, so you want to be higher ranked, make good content… oops, as of NOW, I hope all future and past links have juice… IF not, I will go back to Boy Genius from India and get him to do this again, fix, change the code, do what we need to allow people who do not understand this post to get traffic, and rank.
I spend a lot of time trying to help my friends, then learn it does not work? The internet should not require a rocket scientist to use.

That's cool that you are allowing follow links now in your comments. I've been following your travel blog for over a year now. It's great to live vicariously through you on your adventures. I'm currently in college but would like to travel as you do one day. Keep up the great work on your site.
I am sorry to anyone who posted before. I did not know Blogger.com was going this.
Sorry, I try my best to help all sites that I feel are doing the right thing and helping travelers.
That must have been the problem. Nobody can find the link to the BEST Hostel in Haiti. http://www.portsalutbeachhouse.com
They have a Andy the Hobo approved rate all next year only $ 5 a night.
This nofollow things is ONLY BLOGGER.com comments. The link you just put in is not a link, it is text. To help ranking in search engines you need to make clickable.
This is clickable.
That is a clickable link, it will give juice, in a blogger.com posted published blog that has altered the template to allow.
This link will help your ranking, it is more or less a link exchange or incoming link.
Five Dollars, I have never been to Haiti, may be a cheap travelers place to visit.
To the left of this page should be a link that says,

HOW TO make your link CLICKABLE.
This has been there for years, please use or follow instructions to help your rank.
Did you submit to HoboHideOut.com, another way to get a clickable link....? Submit Hotel URL
