Can somebody here tell us how to check whether a blog is dofollow or nofollow?
Three ways come to mind immediately:
1. A browser add-on that shows it. They do exist and some are free.
2. Look at a few Do Follow directories in general and related to a given niche.
3. Look over the site in question. Sometimes a webmaster will outright say that their blog is Do Follow. It may be in the About section or somewhere else.
To learn more about it, Google your question. You can also type "dofollow" for more general information as a first step.
As an aside, WordPress has dofollow plugins if you'd like to turn your blog into dofollow.
that's way over my head
Thanks for the help. I will try to implement it.
I use firefox add-on name NoDoFollow 1.1, and it works like a charm. When you activate the tool it makes the links either red or blue. Red nofollow and blue dofollow. And is FREE!
I hope this helps!

I am using firefox browser and I like it very much compared to IE. Will try to intstal.
Thanks for your tip!
This addon can do this.
Install and right click and check the option to highlight no follows.

Actually it's very simple, you just haven't seen it discussed b4.
Do Follow links pass on Page Rank whereas No Follow links do not pass on Page Rank.
You can add the rel="nofollow" attribute code in the HTML of your links if you want them to be no follow.
It's that simple.
As an aside, you can also use them in your meta tags to instruct indexing robots. You can use them internally if you do not wish to pass internal Page Rank to a page such as your About Us page.
As another aside, here is how they look (I put a space before the "a" so that it isn't clickable: < a href="www.mysite.com" rel="nofollow">My Site
They can also appear before the href in a link. It works either way.
Separate names with a comma.
