Now, my blog is do follow

Now, my blog is do follow. That means, while you are commenting on any of my article, you will get a free backlinks from my blog. But, but, please do not spam! I also has disable trackback as this morning I got about 200 and more trackback that not even related with my blog. While I trying to visit the URL, I just got that the blog has been deleted by blogspot.

For anyone that used WordPress blog and want his/her blog to be do follow, it can be archived by editing the wp-includes/comment-template.php file or by using some plugins. I don’t know the plugins name that do this work, you can search on Google, because I think that editing this file is far more easy. 🙂

So, first, open the file with any text editor (preferable to not use notepad), and search for this function.

function get_comment_author_link() {
	/** @todo Only call these functions when they are needed. Include in if... else blocks */
	$url    = get_comment_author_url();
	$author = get_comment_author();

	if ( empty( $url ) || 'http://' == $url )
		$return = $author;
	else
		$return = "<a href='$url' rel='external nofollow' class='url'>$author</a>";
	return apply_filters('get_comment_author_link', $return);
}

See the bold line. Delete the nofollow, and the result as below

$return = “<a href=’$url’ rel=’external’ class=’url’>$author</a>”;

And now the function looks like this:

function get_comment_author_link() {
	/** @todo Only call these functions when they are needed. Include in if... else blocks */
	$url    = get_comment_author_url();
	$author = get_comment_author();

	if ( empty( $url ) || 'http://' == $url )
		$return = $author;
	else
		$return = "<a href='$url' rel='external' class='url'>$author</a>";
	return apply_filters('get_comment_author_link', $return);
}

That’s it… 🙂

    Great tutorial. Unfortunately, I used blogspot so perhaps next time move to wordpress self host, then I’ll be back again to this post.

    Hi….

    I think in most cases it is a good idea to have the Do Follow in place as the whole idea in my opinion is to get frank comments on aspects and items in your blog which makes blogging so interesting. So congrats in doing so and I do hope you get lots of quality comments.
