    I was wondering how the no follow, do follow links are controlled for W o r d p r e s s comment blogs.

    I checked WP's forum and thoroughly (by my standards anyway) looked through my WP dashboard settings for the control on this to no avail.

    The reason why I ask, I use Scrapebox and am currently searching for high PR blog posts with do follow comment links, and have been noticing that most are 'nofollow'.

    Is the 'nofollow' link in WP a default setting?

    Thanks in advance.

    In order for a wordpress blog to be doofollow its gotta have a plugin installed to removes the nofollow attributes.

    No, its not a plugin, Its a gesture people declare on their blogs.

    It simply means if u comment on their blogs, they will follow you back by commenting back on your blog. Thus, increasing comments both for u as well as the person who has posted the banner of 'u comment i follow' on his/her blog.
