Unfollow tag in Links

Post by DoctorWeb » Tue Feb 23, 2016 9:11 pm

Is there any information about, or way to add
rel="unfollow" tags in links to other web sites.
I can do this into an HTML object,
but cant seem to find any reference to it for adding a link to a text or image.
Does the program do it automatically.

I thought I had seen a true/false option in the Inspector at some time, but cant find it now.

Maybe the program does it automatically?

Many thanks

I'm sorry there is currently no option to add this code.

For image links you can add the code yourself:
- right click the image
- select Object HTML
- Inside anchor
note that this option is only available if the image has a link.

Thats brilliant, just the ticket. Using that Control-click manoeuvre (not something we do every day on a Mac) I can see Object HTML now, and its easy to add the tag either inside the HTML - just a question finding out whether its before / after etc it,
but I can struggle through that by trial and error.

I just read that Googly will strike you out off their rankings unless you have these tags in links. I was surprised to find its not an option already to add it. And oddly enough the Affiliates I want to link to all have no idea ahwre it should go at all - google don't even answer,
So thanks QWB support.

I have not heard about this. Where did you read this? If this an official Google statement?
I have found this, which seems to conflict with this information.
