Google indexes the blog posts we make on WA quickly, so just wondering if the links to sites from a blog post here ( not on our own sites ) are Follow or NoFollow.

I'm assuming NoFollow - but you never know :-)

I would assume follow. I see them in Webmaster tools.

Either way, it shouldn't matter much. If someone wants a follow, WA shouldn't be considered a source of links to your site. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/leoemery/blog/one-of-the-no-no-s-at-the-wealthy-affiliate (see comments from Kyle here)

If someone is worried about having a follow from WA, being a non-relevant site linking to their blog and wants to make it a nofollow, there is quite a bit of speculation that google follows even nofollow links anyway.

But it is an interesting question.

Yes, they are "follow" links. I just checked the link you posted. :=)

It has a target="_blank" attribute to make it open in a new page.

It does not have a rel="nofollow" attribute in it,
