External Nofollow WordPress Plugin

External Nofollow is a WordPress SEO plugin which automatically add HTML attribute rel="nofollow" to all external links in post content.

Nofollow is used to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target’s ranking in the search engine’s index. Using nofollow, we can control the flow of PageRank from our website to another.

Installation and Usage

  • Unzip downloaded file and upload extracted folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  • Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress and enjoy.

The plugin does its job automatically. It will check each link in the post content, if the link begins with blog URL, then it’s passed; otherwise, the attribute rel="nofollow" will be added.

You don’t need to do anything. Just install and forget!


The plugin is improved from the code in the article WordPress Tip: Add nofollow to links in post content. I want to give big thank to WPExplorer, who encourage me to create this plugin.
