    Is there a plugin that will autimatically take every external link on my WP site and change it to result in the homepage of my WP site?

    I have autoblog scripts running and I rather have it so if someone clicks the link on the post it just brings them back to my homepage.

    Feel free to include why this is bad

    I'm pretty sure that this can be done through .htaccess, but you'll have to search around a little bit. Try terms like "htaccess redirect all pages to index".

    I am a bit confused with your query, What external links you want to redirect to your WP sites? and what do you mean by "change it to result in the homepage of my WP site?"

    please clear that

    Just use the rewrite http://outlinkdotcom to http://yourpagedotcom/#http://outlinkdotcom
    Btw, the high trusted outbound links also make your page good marks in G! eyes

    So I have an autoblog running and when it makes posts it puts the link to the original site at the end of the post. Too many outbound links hurt. Yes they still hurt even if you make them no follow.

    I can adjust things so it doesn't post any more links with each post but in the mean time what do I do about the existing posts? I was hoping for some simple idiot proof instructions to get them to all point to the index/home page instead of where they point now.
