Hello.

Hi there!

My name is Alex, I'm a guru here at Shopify!

No problem! You can do this by modifying the links you already have with a NoFollow tag. To do so, open up that blog post and click on the HTML view, like so:

Once done, you'll be able to see the HTML links that you've entered there. You'll want to add rel="nofollow" in between the a and href sections of those links - once done, it should look like the second example:

Hope that's helped! Please feel free to let me know, and you can always give us a call or start a live chat at any time. We're open 24/7 for your convenience and always happy to assist!

Cheers,

Is there a way to set links as no_follow by default for certain sections of the website so that we don't have to go into each individual link to add the nofollow?

@TheOrganicBabe This is pretty simple.

Check it out: all you have to do is change this:

<a href="http://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads">Your Text Here</a>

to this:

<a rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" href="http://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads">Your Text Here</a>

 

Now, some of you just want to change it because you think it'll do good, but in most cases, it can be better to just leave it. Read more in the article here.
