How to add "rel=nofollow" attribute to ALL external links....in Drupal 7?

So far I can find only with different filters and what not....

Before I was working with Joomla - I had a single plugin which was once set up - and wrapped ALL, completely all external links, wherever they would be - in Menus, articles, modules, social buttons, advertisements, etc....

I just cannot understand why would I need some Filter - the only Filtering option should be - it is an External link...

If I would know all external URL some scripts or users may add to my site - it would be great. But my experience shows - external URLs are almost always added secretly without me being aware of it; but it still should have "rel=nofollow"..

Have you tried this module : Noindex External Links

Module let's you take full control of external links indexing. Pages could also pass HTML-validation.


Two methods of indexing control:

  • Wrap links with NOINDEX tag. NOINDEX tag is used to deny indexing part of page. Only Yandex and Rambler considers this tag but Google and others doesn't. There is also an attribute NOINDEX in meta-tag Robots.
  • Add attribute rel="nofollow" to links. This link's attribute has no effect on indexing. Only Google really do not follow this links but others do. Attribute is used to say to search engine that links no longer constitute a "vote" in the PageRank system.
  • I have seen that, but I couldn't make it to work...may be it's because I'm on WAMP? Aug 8, 2014 at 23:12
  • What isn't working ? Any error or something ?

  • no error, nothing at all, didn't show up in code; but I have heard it's working for some people....I don't know why, so my assumption was - whether it depends on some filters again, whether it's because on WAMP... Aug 15, 2014 at 5:26
  • Maybe you have to go to your text format. It worked for me after that. check : reinisfischer.com/…
