    Hi Jennifer,

    I still don’t really understand why bloggers like these plugins that count comments. Spammers leave multiple comments in blogs so if you don’t know they are spammers and approve them they’ll end up with dofollow luv too and if you do know they’re spammers you never would have approved their comments anyway.

    I keep asking fans of those types of plugins but so far haven’t received any logical answer to why we would need one.

    1. Of course when using these type of plugin you must moderate comments hard, deny all of comments like: thanks for sharing, thanks you, nice post… but a good comment will make your page still pretty for SEO, they’re adding the relevant link to your topic, make your content fresh and encourage useful comment.

    2. @Jennifer R, why not try using GASP to help stop spam comments. I find that with GASP and Akismet working together, my spam comments are minute, so much so, I can’t remember when my last spam comment was… it was ages ago :-D

      Why not give it a whirl :-)

    3. @Christopher nice plugin but I think the spamming tools maybe clever enough to tick your plugin custom box.

    4. I used to think that too Jennifer, that is until I tried it.

      It really can’t – yet :-)

      I used to have to sift threw around 50 spam comments a day, just to check for the odd good comment that may have slipped through. Using GASP and Akismet I havent had to moderate a spam comment in ages! Little spam gets through, and that’s only user submitted spam, and Akismet catches that for me :-)

      Check out my Philosophy Blog, try it out for yourself and see how well it works, please give it just a few day’s trial :-P

      Good luck in your fight against spam!

    Definitely, I like the simplicity behind the plugin you just made. Hope you put an exclude list of some sort, like if I type in a list of e-mail addresses they’d be filtered out from any link love.

    1. Thanks for your suggestion, the idea is awesome and I will add that featured in the next release of the plugin :) (your blog design is so nice)

    2. A new version of Link Love plugin 1.1 has been released as you wish :)

    3. this is great news! I’ll be sure to try it later. Thanks!

    4. I just tried it now and it works great! Thanks again!

    Wow! You’ve really got a good blog! Keep up the hard work! Also, thank for the info.

  17. Excellent plug-in. I’ve been looking for a dofollow plug-in that works with author’s email and not url and this fits the description nicely ;-).

    BTW your blog seems to be nofollow on my browser

    I’m going to create a new version of this plugin which support URL blacklist, does it necessary for this type of plugin?

    1. It’s TOTALLY necessary. Could you please include a way of removing nofollow from the links within the comments as well? I’m using Commentluv on my site and the commentluv links are still nofollow.

      Thanks ;-)

      P.S: I wrote a review of wordpress dofollow plug-ins scheduled to go live next week Monday and I included you plug-in @ the top. Cheers ;-)

    This is a great plugin. It would be better if it also adds into posts something like “Nofollow will be removed after 3 excellent comments”.

    Like someone said above, using these kind of plugins, you will become a target for spammer but if you moderate the comments and use Akismet for the obvious spam comments, they will go away in the end.

    I can’t get my dang PR up but Wassup and Google Analytics says I have a good steady flow of traffic so maybe this plugin will help at least get people to comment on my blog, good or bad. I also use the CommentLuv plugin to help encourage comments.

    I use the NoFollow Free plugin for WordPress which does something very similar with options to customize DoFollow links for ppl who leave a certain amount of approved comments.

    Hi this is truly an amazing plugin, I think I can even use it on my site. I was wondering if there is a program that would help me generate wordpress plugins? I am interested in building my own!:)

    1. As what I know, there’s no program can do that for you :)

      So, you need to learn PHP, mySQL and WordPress to develop your own.
