This is an SEO oriented plugin aimed to discourage backlink building SPAM in e107 powered websites by automatically inserting an rel="nofollow" attribute to posted links in comment, chat, forum and other areas.
Links with an rel="nofollow" attribute generates no positive benefit for the poster in terms of PageRank (or other search engine value).
What is nofollow?
Nofollow is an attribute value that can be added to a hyperlink. It is used with the rel=" " attribute in a hyperlink.
According to Google blog "From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel="nofollow") on hyperlinks, those links won't get any credit when we rank websites in our search results." - Jan, 2005
Critisism - Despite Google's and other web search providers' backing of the 'nofollow concept' there are some strong critisism about its use among webmasters. It is upto you to try out and decide to use or not to use.
Admin can omit this plugin's action on selected pages same way as menu visibility works in e107.
Admin can optionally omit certain domains from being made nofollow.
All internal links are left out (from being made nofollow).
Additional option to make links nofollow while posting (which saves user posted links in the database with an rel="nofollow" attribute when turned on) It works only on users who have the permission to post html on the site.
Logs and shows the number of links made nofollow while posting.
