After much discussion, we have decided to remove the “no follow” tag from comments made on the blog. Typically, spammers try to take advantage of situations like this. However, I think it is important for bloggers to encourage a thriving blog community. We decided to make this change for two reasons:
I hope that this works out well and that people do not take advantage of it. If we see a bunch of comments like: “Nice post!” or “I agree!”, things like that which offer nothing of benefit, we may have to bring “no follow” back.
Until then, feel free to comment and reap the rewards :).
