rel="external"- What does this show dofollow or nofollow link? I've found it in source of a few blog's comment. Are those blogs nofollow blog or dofollow blog? Since I'm a new bee in seo I don't know what rel="external" actually is? And role of it?

Please help me with a list of dofollow blog? Thnx

Thanks shabbir, I'm sorry it's not "eternal" it's "external".

do follow is hyperlink inclusion that tells search engines to pass on any credibility or influence to an outbound link.dofollow backlinks delivers link juice to your site and no follow do not do it. no follow increase your website's single visit.

rel=’external’ is a part of xhtml code necessary to open a new window, but it requires javascript to execute this action.

function externalLinks() {
if (!document.getElementsByTagName) return;
var anchors = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
for (var i=0; i
var anchor = anchors[i];
if (anchor.getAttribute("href") &&
anchor.getAttribute("rel") == "external")
anchor.target = "_blank";
}
}
window.onload = externalLinks;
