This method is good for any links that you add in regular WordPress content. But if you want to nofollow links in your comments, the plugin in the next section offers a simpler implementation.

To get started, add a regular hyperlink (you’ll make it nofollow in a second!):

Insert a normal WordPress link

Then, select the link and go to the Text tab of the WordPress editor. You should see the actual HTML for your link:

Open the text tab to view the link’s HTML

To add the nofollow attribute:

  • Find the part of the HTML that says href=""
  • Add rel="nofollow" after that part, with a space in between

Add nofollow attribute to link’s HTML

And that’s it! You can now return to the Visual tab of the WordPress editor and continue with your post.

Your link will look 100% normal in the Visual tab, but the nofollow attribute will remain.
