I need to have some links on my home page that are dofollow. I used the blogroll dofollow plugin and it didn't work.

I am using WP 3.2.1 and the Woo them Busy Bee  2.9.1 Framework 4.4.3

I use the link indicator plugin on my blog - http://sw-guide.de/wordpress/plugins/link-indication-plugin/ - it allows you to dictate which links are do-follow/no-follow. You can set all external links to no-follow or set specifically which links (including those on your blogroll) are no-follow. It's been really useful.

Once you install the plugin go to settings to locate the plugin settings. Under the section "Apply indicators and attributes to links" (it's the third section) there is a place where you can enter in add the no follow attribute to certain links. The place you will enter this in will already have three examples "/wp-admin/
wp-login.php
wikipedia.org" just add the links you want no followed in that section. You can add as many as you want.

Any links that aren't in that section of "no follow" links will be do follow.

there's a box at the top that if you check it, should overwrite what theme as set. see if that works. if not not sure what else to do. Ask for more people to view this question.

Woo themes has an SEO setting which forced this.

I changed the setting and the problem was solved.

The setting is Set meta for Posts & Pages to 'follow' by default. It was set to nofollow originally.

Woo themes has a setting which makes everything nofollow or dofollow by default.
