How to add a nofollow tag to links in a blog article?

Hi there,

 

It seems there is no way to add a nofollow tag to links on a Weebly website. Specifically I am trying to get them into a blog and after reaching out to support they could not help me. Does anyone know how you can do this-- if I could access the html of the blog article itself I should be able to do it but I cannot find where the article text html is.

Thank you.

There wouldn't be a way to do that unless you hand code your link in an embed code element. For example, something like this would look like a normal text element, but the link within it has nofollow:

 

<div class="paragraph">
  This is the text and here is a <a href="//somewebsite.com" alt="Some Website" rel="nofollow">link</a> within the text.
</div>

You could add a meta tag to the blog's Header Code field, although this code would make it apply to every link on a blog page (including navigation links and links in the side bar:

<meta name="robots" content="nofollow" />

 Use Embed Code option to write post in HTML.

Go to post editor in weebly.

Click on the Embed Code option

To create a link in HTML here is how you do it:

 

<a href="add linking website here">Text that your user will see</a>

To add a nofollow attribute in your link, you can simply add this code rel="nofollow. Here is an example:

<a href="http: ......." rel="nofollow">Example of a nofollow link</a>
