    I have a wordpress.org blog but am over on this forum since I have 7000 backlinks for wordpress.com blogs. Every time someone links to an article, I get a backlink from the article, tag, category, page, etc. It can add up quickly. I also get 100s from blogrolls.

    Google is not being picky these days and penalizing people with “unnatural links.” Although these links are love links, Google penalized me. What can I do with wordpress.com do follow links?

    The blog I need help with is www.green-talk.com.

    The blog you specified at http://www.green-talk.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    Timetheif, I am going to disavow 7000 links? I am bring up a flaw in the wordpress structure. No one in their right mind would think it is a problem.

    WordPress.com should have no follow links activated or at least not have so many links outflowing from one article.

    I’m surprised to hear this, because the links from the global tag pages have been No Follow for about three years now. I remember, because my hits went from 3000 a day to 500.
