New feature added to the Stallion 6.1 update, WPRobot 3 Autoblog Plugin Stallion SEO Features.
Do a little research in Google and you’ll find the best, most feature rich WordPress autoblog plugin is WPRobot 3, it is an awesome autoblog plugin.
See my WPRobot 3 Review.
In Stallion 6.1 you will find a new settings under the Stallion 6 theme Advanced SEO options page, when turned on a new WPRobot 3 options page will be available.
On this new settings page (found under the WPRobot 3 Menu under “SEO Settings”, see screenshot) you will be able to set the following.
Turn WPRobot 3 SEO ON/OFF
SEO wise this is perfect, you don’t waste link benefit on affiliate type links, but the anchor text of those links (which is keyword rich with the WPRobot 3 Plugin) is still counted as body text by the search engines.
Remove all rel=”nofollow” Links, not just WPRobot 3 Affiliate links
Important SEO information: rel=”nofollow” links DELETE link benefit. We should NOT use rel=”nofollow” on our sites anymore (Google changed the rules a few years back!). As a Stallion SEO theme user you can remove them all.
Stumbled into a happy SEO accident while coding this Stallion built in plugin. The default link format of WPRobot 3 template links that use rel=”nofollow” is also the format used by most webmasters who add rel=”nofollow” links:
Default rel=”nofollow” Format
<a href="http://www.example.com/" rel="nofollow">Anchor Text or Image</a>
<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.example.com/">Anchor Text or Image</a>
If you turn “Hide ALL rel=”nofollow” Links” to ON, ALL your main content nofollow links will be cloaked as well. If you don’t want all your main content (only affects main content) nofollow links cloaked turn this setting to OFF.
WPRobot 3 Amazon Buy Now Image
Choose from 14 Buy Now images, some saying buy from Amazon, others just Buy Now. Every file has a different filename and some of the images match with the Stallion theme colour schemes, select the Blue Stallion 6 theme colour and select a Blue Buy Now image.
Changing this files filename partially removes (see next setting for full removal) of a very easy to find affiliate footprint that search engines like Google could use to find and downgrade WPRobot 3 autoblogs.
Also nice to have 14 different images to choose from.
WPRobot 3 Plugin Image Folder
This changes the folder location of the WPRobot 3 plugins images (Amazon buy now button).
You can leave it as the new default (within the Stallion themes folder) or for even better removal of this affiliate footprint set the location by copying (use FTP: Filezilla for example) the image folder (found within the Stallion themes zip file) somewhere on your server (you can also rename it) and setting the location box with format /nameoffolder/ for location www.example.com/nameoffolder/ or /wp-content/uploads/images/ for location www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/images/ (in this example I renamed the /nameoffolder/ folder to /images/ and uploaded to /wp-content/uploads/ using FTP). You can put this folder anywhere on the main domain and rename it whatever you like.
These two WPRobot 3 Plugin image features would make it almost impossible for a search engine to use that image as a way to find and downgrade your autoblogs.
All three settings will work on both old and new WPRobot 3 autoblogs. The Stallion Theme Plugin Add on works on the content just before it’s served to a browser/search engine. It doesn’t rewrite the content in your database, so old posts are rewritten as well as new. You could have a 10,000 page autoblog have all it’s link benefit wasting nofollow affiliate links removed with a few clicks of the mouse after installing Stallion 6.1+.
