    Ok this something I figured out. All comment link are no follow by default. BUT if you put your link in the comment box like this <a href="http://thisIsJustAnExampleLink.com" rel="">Your anchor text here.</a>

    wordpress will add rel="nofollow" after the rel="" since the fist one is empty link will be do follow I checked it on my blogs and it works.

    I tested it by puting links on my blogs and than testing it with some online tool link did NOT report as no follow so G may count it as follow too.

    Test it and let me know if it works:)

    <a href="http://thisIsJustAnExampleLink.com" rel="" rel="nofollow">Your anchor text here.</a>

    It's hard to prove this because we don't know how google bots read anchor texts.

    Your link would look like this.

    <a href="http://thisIsJustAnExampleLink.com" rel="" rel="nofollow">

    Does the 2nd rel="nofollow" matter? We don't know for sure.

    Typically, from an software engineering perspective, you would most likely read the second tag. If you're a bot and you parse a link you would read it left to right. Your first rel would set the state to follow and then the bot would continue parsing the link and hit the rel=nofollow which would result in the bot deeming the link to be nofollow.

    There could be a hole but if you're programming this, usually you're either going to parse each element individually or simply look for the rel=nofollow. If you're just looking for any instance of nofollow in the tag a blank can't override it. For instance:

    if the rel = nofollow then link is no-follow.

    It wouldn't parse them in any order. It's a simple yes or no regular expression match. As long as there's one instance of nofollow, it's no follow.

    Then again, there are no bug free programs out there. There's always a chance the people over at G writing the bot didn't think of this but considering how much bad HTML programming there is out there and how many malformed links are spread out across the internet, I'm guessing that G is pretty good at dealing with anomalies in HTML code.

    If only the world worked this way. Do you think G is this stupid?

    Yes a couple years ago some geniuses wrote in their comments rel="d0follow" or rel="follow" or even the einsteins wrote another rel="nofollow" to double up the nofollows, hopefully making a positive follow just as two negative numbers multiplied come to a positive.

    Try using rel="follow" instead of rel=""

    Nope. Programming point of view the last one will be used; in this case the "nofollow"

    I tested this and it's not working. rel="" does work but I don't know if google will count that as ********.

    I haven't tried it.

    Maybe it is a bug on a certain version that WordPress fixed. That would explain why it works for some and not others. Just my thoughts.
