It’s Official: Google moves to block Comment Spam

January 19th, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

Good news for CAD Bloggers !

A post to the Google Weblog has confirmed earlier rumours that it has adopted the rel=”nofollow” tag that will see the effectiveness of comment spam diminish as it is adopted by major blogging tools. When Google sees the attribute (rel=”nofollow”) on links, in this case from the comment section of blogs, those links won’t get any credit when they rank websites in their search results, and the spammers will have lost their main incentive to spam blogs. On board include SixApart, SixApart LiveJournal, Blogger, WordPress, Flickr, Buzznet, Scripting News and Blosxom.

(And add Yahoo and MSN to the list. -kc.)
