I am running a Wordpress blog and guest authors asked me to change the nofollow links to dofollow links for their posts created last time. There are a lot of works to do if I open every posts and change that manually. How can I change nofollow to dofollow in Wordpress quickly? I would like to know if I can do that with commands or via a plugin.

You can always change the wanted links/information via the database. This function for sure is available on the PHPMyAdmin. Press on the table, then go to "Search and Replace", enter the text you wish to replace and you will see all the lines that will get replaced before you continue. Make sure you have a database copy before you make any changes.

You need to install Better Search Replace plugin of Delicious Brains, that will help you to change nofollow to dofollow link in Wordpress with some clicks.
Just replace rel="nofollow" with an empty value and the rest this plugin will do for you.

The attribute that defines a link as NoFollow is rel=“nofollow”. If you remove the rel=“nofollow” attribute, then your link becomes DoFollow. There is no dofollow value. The absence of the nofollow value makes the link a DoFollow.

The code is added to your theme's functions.php file. The core WordPress code is not modified in any way.


This plugin "DoFollow Case by Case" should do the job: it allows to add dofollow / nofollow on author basis.

I am using the same plugins and it really works, this is very simple. WP External Links seems to be the best one so far

Thanks all for your recommendations but to be honest I didn't like using a plugin because it will consume more resource from my website or server, I would like to use a manual way instead like a updated query from mysql or something else.

When the pandemic started, we decide to start making online lessons on our site. We were choosing a lot between several plugins. In the end, we decided that Agora is the best plugin for this purpose because it has the best quality of the video.
