Site news: Follow

by Volker Weber

Google supports a new link attribute rel="nofollow", as reported in many blogs, that is set to remove the incentive to spam comments, trackbacks and referrers. Currently I am not publishing referrers or trackbacks. Comments are protected by the CAPTCHA controller, so I currently see no incentive to downgrade the links that are included in your comments. So, if you are adding a URL with your comment, or if you add a proper href within your comment, I will continue to link to it without this new attribute. Links are an important part of the blogsphere and I value them a lot.

ACK, I think it's not my job to tell google what kind of links it should and which it shouldn't use to calculate rankings. If someone thinks it's worth to post a link to a site I want it to be counted and or (maybe) rated by other sites. I will take care that there is no spam in my blog and google should trust or leave me. (just my 0.02 EUROcents)

Volker, what is your take on the accessibility issues with CAPTCHA? (Note that I use them myself, but always with a bad feeling).

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
