Site Change: We’ve Removed the “nofollow” Attribute From Our Comment Links
In an attempt to make HackCollege a friendlier site for all, especially other bloggers and commenters, we’ve removed the “nofollow” attribute from our link tags.
What does this mean? Every search engine has crawlers. The “nofollow” attribute tells a crawler to not follow that link and influence the site’s overall ranking. The “nofollow” attribute was originally implemented to cut down on blog spam. But over here at HackCollege, we have Askimet installed and we don’t have too much traffic. So we’re not too worried about blog spam.
So please see this as a privilege and treat it as such. Thanks :)
