If my previous post i show you how to make links on comment box nofollow, this time I’m gonna show how to apply nofollow for blogspot label widget. This trick will give a good effect for your blog Onpage SEO.

Basically when you click on label or category widget, the link will lead you to search page. Because it lead to result search page, this type of link is not a good SEO practice. Google as a big search engine company will recommend its bot to not index all these link. Label widget function is just to help visitor, not to take over search engine function. Often I see blog owner added so many label on their post.

If you don’t apply NoFollow tag, google will see your blog as a spammy blog and it also can caused duplicate content. Now, how to add this tag on your blog?, follow the tutorial below:

1. Go to Template area and click Edit HTML button.
2. Find this part:

<a expr:dir=’data:blog.languageDirection’ expr:href=’data:label.url’><data:label.name/></a>

and put rel=”nofollow”, so it will look like this:

<a expr:dir=’data:blog.languageDirection’ expr:href=’data:label.url’ rel=”nofollow”><data:label.name/></a>

There are 2 section that have this code on your template, so you need to add the tag to both of them. This tag only apply for label widget not for post-footer or breadcrumbs. For a better result you can customize your robots.txt and robot header tags.

Hope this helpful!.
