This is a SEO plugin for advanced WordPress Search Engine Optimization techniques and for those looking to explore SEO siloing


This plugin is intended to be used in advanced linking stuctures such as those described in WordPress SEO Masterclass For Competitive Niches

Rather than blocking duplicate content pages, they can be used to your advantage, but as customized landing pages and a method of channelling “Google Juice” away from pages that are receiving the majority of links, to pages that you wish to rank well, and also to your homepage to enhance monetization.

This plugin adds rel=”nofollow” to all links within the content that are displayed on your home page and duplicate content pages.

Search engine followable links remain on page, single and RSS feeds.


1. Just unzip and upload the “nofollowdupes.php” file to your ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Optional – modify the domain within the plugin to allow internal links to be followed
