    Hello BHF,

    How long have wordpress comments been no-follow?

    I only just realized when doing my first ever ScrapeBox blast and looked at the source and saw the comment was external nofollow.

    I have got one of my sites about a year ago to the top of Google with 5k backlinks from WordPress blogs so is this change recent? Or has it always been no follow but Google still values the backlinks?

    It depends on the blogs. Some are nofollow and some are not. There was a thread recently about finding follow blogs, try finding it, I didn't find it

    You can't find a good blog with **************** comments, if there is it is a crappy spammy blog
