Hi,

On our site we have a set of jpg/png/gif on the left side panel that link off to companies that offer discount to paid members.

I have been contacted by one of them tonight because google has come after them for spamming, goggle claims that they have over 60,000 entries with a link to their site on. I have the left panel on the forums page and it appears that google is counting every forum entry as including a link to their site.

How can I stop this ?

Ok, so I think that I need to add:
rel="nofollow" to each link.

Does the OCP comcode support that or do I need to recode the links using semi html ?

This is how the link is coded now:

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
