    Hey Guys,

    Recently I started blogging (Been spending the last few weeks reading more and understanding and learning more about blogging along with my tonnes of coffee!) and so far I have been doing well except for this one question that is in the Technical SEO aspect.

    Blogging usually involves pointing out to various references and links to other websites, forums and blogs. I have been doing that, but I have been adding a rel="nofollow" tag to every single link that I am referring to in each of my blog posts.

    I investigated some very popular blogs and found that most of them are using do follow tags in the blog posts while using rel="external nofollow" tags for only the comment section.

    Looking for some open discussion/suggestions whether I should make those links do follow or keep them nofollow and if so, are there any SEO benefits?

    HI :)

    I usually make do follows, a nofollow tells google that you don´t trust/like the site you are linking too :)

    If you are using many links to other sites on pages, you are sending some juice to these sites, and there would be lees for your internal links..

    So use do follow to few sites, which are relevant for your article - if it´s a high authority page, it´s great :) however, don´t link to sites, if they are targeting the same keywords as your site :)

    This is my 5 cent´s looking forward to other replys :)

    Best Tommy

    From my experiences, I have seen if u have a back link from a no follow but a high authority site like wikipedia, then it does help you to get ranking. I think Google does count the no follow links, specially if it comes from high authority sites. In your case: as you are not making a backlink, using the nofollow on your own site, then I think it will at least help your site to not to be considered as a 'spam site' or a site which is used for link building purpose only.

    No follow is pointless.
