    Hey guys

    I'm wondering if there is a plugin or something within Wordpress that I'm missing to make all my external links nofollow. Apparently this improves SEO quite a bit and was wondering if there was a quicker solution than adding the rel='nofollow' to each and every link.

    Thanks a lot :)

    Steve.

    There's a number of plugins that try to handle the nofollow tag in various scenarios:

    You might also want to check out the WP No External Links plugin. I can't remember if it explicitly makes outbound links nofollow, but it could help your SEO. It makes all OBL's look like internal links.

    Sadly SEo Sniper doesn't seem to work anymore, and won't work for me, but I give you my thanks anyway, as you did try to help :)

    Greg, sir, is there a particular one that you would recommend? I have tried one or two that just didn't work. I am temporarily using SEOpressor and it's advising me that I need to make the links in my pages / posts nofollow and I've tried a couple of plugins, but apparently they haven't helped.

    Thanks :)
    Steve.
