I am a beginner in Blogging and SEO subjects.

I have a Google Blogger/BlogSpot's blog. My blog has 600 posts (each one with some outbound links), and 3 days ago I became unable to continue posting because:

"Your (my) blog seems to be a spam blog (splog). Excessive number of outbound links is considered a Link Farm, a form of Spamdexing, thus not being tolerated by Blogger."

I requested a human verification to unlock my blog and I continue waiting for it...

This awful situation tells me I must to do a thing: go to each outbound link, and put rel='nofollow' in all of them. My problem/question is how can I do this in an easy batch way? It is impossible to edit links, one-by-one, manually (because they are too many!). So, I need to automatically put a nofollow in every outbound link, or my blog is condemned to death... Can you help me?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards.

Hi there,

Seems like you gots a problemo!

Where are the links existing in the actual body of the post or another place. If it's in the post body then you may have a problem. At a guess if its in the body of the post you may need to either edit each post "nightmare situation" or if you have it, run some find and replace functions on the database should it give you access to do so!

If its not in the post body and elsewhere you will need to look in your template files at all the <a href""> areas and work out should it be nofollowed, IE where commenters can have the Name linked to there website, you'd ideally want to nofollow that. You need to find where to edit your template from your dashboard and find areas like the code snippet. and add the rel='nofollow' to them

Hope this helps
