To Follow or NoFollow!

Last Update: July 27, 2018

Hi everyone,

Just another short update, (I didn’t want to put it in my last blog post).

Another update I did today, spending 10 hours (with breaks), was to take out ‘nofollow’ code out of all my posts where it wasn’t needed.

I was naive!

I originally added them because I didn’t want to pass on ‘link juice’ as it’s called. However, I read that this can hurt your SEO ranking.

The best practice is to follow authority sites and to nofollow your affiliate links.

My site has been quite stagnant for a while, but has seen a slight increase as of late. Hopefully this is because of recent updates.

Wishing for great things!

I’m hoping though that this latest fix will help my site greatly and see my rankings soar.

I just hope because in my opinion my site is looking quite professional. There’s still a few things I need to fix but on the whole I am pleased at the improvements I have made for the last 4/5 months.

Wish me luck.

No worries. Just wish I had paid a bit more attention to this before. But anyways.

This is a learning experience for all of us. Thanks for the post, I am continually learning from everyone here on WA. There is so much to learn and there is no way we can pay attention to all of it. A lot is going to be trial and error.

It will all come together in its own time.
