1. Is there any way of making links within our articles "nofollow?" If I would want to write an article like "Top 100 Social Bookmarking sites," I would certainly want to make all those links "nofollow" to avoid looking like spam.

2. Can I insert direct links to amazon products within the text of the article? If I do not want to use image or Wizzley Amazon module, is it allowed to just insert direct product link?

#1 will have to be answered by Anne or Simon.

#2 - at this point we don't allow text links with your personal aff-ID for Amazon, Zazzle and Allposters. However, you may use Shareasale, CJ, Pepperjam, or other reputable aff-links in any way you see fit.

Thanks for the clarification regarding affiliate links Chef.

So far, I haven't found any way of making links no-follow so I guess that it will just be added to the ever-expanding list of "it would be nice to have" features. Still, I will look forward to Anne's or Simon's answer.

Can't you just add the no follow tag within the HTML?

Just tried it. As soon as I save the text module, rel="nofollow" tag gets deleted.

Hello Doc,

right now, there is no way for adding "nofollow" manually to your links. We might change that, but I wouldn't worry at all about Google classifying your article as spam - as long as the target websites are quality sites themselves, which is certainly the case.

If it's a useful list of links, Google will love it :)

Thank you very much for the clarification Simon. Since Wizzley team has nothing against such articles, it is good enough for me.

Thanks again...
