Should You Share the Link Love?

ifollowblue.gifRemember when the search engines created the “nofollow [1]” tag. It was created to prevent those folks who bomb your blogs with garbage comments. I didn’t follow the logic. Why? The folks who really cared if this tag was there or not were your real contributors and those who didn’t care, the bad guys, weren’t slowed down a bit. After all, the bad guys are usually just using bots, and they don’t really care about the rejection. For them it’s a numbers game.

Thankfully, some bloggers have pushed forward and created the “I Follow” movement [2] and even created a “Do Follow” plugin [3] for WordPress.

We’ve always felt that if you contribute to our community with a relevant comment, we should share the link love. What are you planning on doing? Will you follow the “You Comment, I follow” movement?
