    DigitalPoint is Now NoFollow

    The popular webmaster forum, DigitalPoint Forums, has now made all links nofollow. The owner of the site, Shawn Hogan, said he implemented the change due to the high volume of spam in signatures and posts across the forums.

    This is going to hurt signature sellers a lot. DigitalPoint Forums signatures were worth $10 per 1,000 posts. I wonder what the new worth will be...

    I have to agree, at times the spammy messages were and are frustrating. I turned off the instant notification because of this and I have only posted on there for a few months.

    Yeah it's gotten to me a lot now. I've been reporting all of the spam messages, something I never did before.

    That's a good point, I should probably be doing the same.

    Probably. I only do it because it's been growing lately and these days Shawn is the only one moderating the forum.

    I'm pretty sure premium members signatures are no follow also, though yes you do get 4 links still.

    They have a lot of moderators, but Shawn is pretty much the only one that actually moderates these days.

    They still get dofollow signature BUT if the system sees it as spammy it will automatically make them nofollow.

    Nope. Doubt it. Shawn even said not to do it for the dofollow links because their links may be nofollow as well.
