    Are sites that have the facebook comment plugin, do-follow or nofollow? Couldnt find the answer via google.

    (Edit lol why is that word do... follow blocked??)

    They're nofollow, but they do get indexed.

    You can verify this with something like Quirk Searchstatus plugin for FF and by searching for the text of a comment on a popular blog that's a few days old

    Yes, I can confirm they get indexed, That is why I was curious if they were also indexed. Too easy to get backlinks I guess if they were follow. because they take no approval.

    A member of another forum said they were no-follow, with the exception of the "Powered by Disqus" link, which is do-follow.

    I usually just assume that links in comments are no-follow by default.
