    Hello,

    I have some tricks I would like to share, that works in some of this forums, article directories and blog comments. It consist of bypassing the code that automatically adds the tag rel="nofollow" to any link you post.

    Method 1
    Sometimes, adding the tag rel="something" will avoid the system to add the rel="nofollow" tag, that simple.

    Method 2
    If the rel="nofollow" is added with Javascript or in the client side, then it's easy, you just have to send the POST request by yourself or tune the Javascript that adds the rel="nofollow".

    Do you know any other method?

    Well, in some cases the tag nofollow is added in your browser before sending the request to the server, by an editor or with Javascript.
    In the easiest case you can use your browser to edit manually the HTML and remove the rel="nofollow" tag yourself, before hitting the send button.

    I guess you can do this by "Inspect Element" method in your browser.

    You can intercept the data sent to the server using brower plugin such as live http header to modify the data before the submission. but I don't think that the rel="nowfollow" is added on the client side. I think it's managed on the server side.

    It depends, but yes most of the times is managed in the server. I checked how some developers manage this and lot's of times is with a regex, and some times this regex have bugs. So i found another method... can work sometimes:

    Method 3
    Add another attribute between <a and href="", like this: <a anotherattribute="yes" href=""></a>
