How can you tell if a blog has do follow or do not follow back links?
The way you know a link is nofollow is that it has the "rel=nofollow" tag in the link. So, you would need to look at the html to see if the link has this tag.
Of course, there are a few plugins that will do this for you, but that is essentially all they are doing...
Thanks Roger. The way I know to do that is click View in the title bar and then page source to view the HTML. I didn't know I could see the no follow tag by viewing html, thanks.
If you are smart or lucky enough to have Mozilla Firefox as your browser instead of Microsucks I.E., there is a toolbar button labeled "NF" that you can enable along with other buttons such as Back, Forward, Reload, Home, Stop, New WIndow, New Tab, Print, etc.
The NF button is a toggle that will display in red any nofollow links on a page.
You can also install SEO4FireFox that does that and other things.
The problem with checking manually is that the nofollow attribute can be applied individually to one link, to all of the links on a page, or to an entire website. Viewing source code for a page may not necessarily give you the answer you're looking for.
Install Google Chrome and the NoFollow checker - it highlights nofollow links in pink for you as you view a page. Quick and easy.

Is it possible to add a feature to links within text and to the photos to opt to have the link open in a new window? This would allow the reader to stay on the original page. Bounce rates rise every time someone leaves a page before reading the entire article, for whatever reason. If relevant links...

My blog is a Blogger blog...which is a Google product. Today a new check box showed up in the place where we can set up hyperlinks. It is an option to make the link "no follow". I've looked at the learning page they provide to explain it but I don't think I get what the advantage...
