Hey, When I add others websites link in the question body or in the answer body, it makes nofollow link by default. Then if I change the "rel=nofollow" to "rel=" dofollow" of these links, it stills not working.

I use Ultimate SEO Plugin in my q2a site. There is an option for add links to making dofollow. But it also doesn’t working. 

How can I make dofollow link in question and answer body content? 

Link Optimization Section:

Genaral Setting In Admin Panel: 

HTML Code of post that I want make dofollow link: 


Site Language : Bengali

Q2A version: 1.8.6
You will need to provide the following information:
 1. Screenshot of the Link Optimization section of the Ultimate SEO plugin
 2. URL of your site (textual, don't change it)
 3. Preferred URL you've set in admin/general (textual, don't change it)
 4. Textual content of the post that is supposed to work and is not working (you can get the HTML from the database)
Check it out bro!

If you read the screenshot carefully, you will see that you have internal and external links. Internal links are managed by the checkbox. External links are whitelisted one by one. You've added those 3 domains. However, you are including links for other domains (such as tune71.com) which are not whitelisted.

If you want to apply a dofollow to domains, you need to specify one by one in the plugin. Note this makes sense. You need to make sure you site links to legit and decent content. Otherwise, search engines will lower your ranking.

Yes bro. I know, I should be careful for making a link as dofollow. But I have a little confusion.

There are three options in the Link Optimization Section.
1. External
2. Internal
3. Dofollow

i. What I should select in the checkbox?

ii. Are you suggesting me to add link with "https://www" (htttps://www.example.com)?

iii. How can I make a link as whitelisted?
The code of the plugin was really buggy. I recreated some sections of it and updated my fork.

I tried to make that section more intuitive. Now you should add domains and apply what you want to do with them. For example:

 * your-own-site.com: Dofollow (this means whitelisted)
 * other-site-you-have.com: Dofollow (this means whitelisted)
 * a-bad-site.com: Nofollow (although you could just not add this rule as the default is actually nofollow)

My fork of the plugin lives here: https://github.com/pupi1985/q2a-ultimate-seo
