Outlines links with and without rel="nofollow" attribute, external links, and links on pages with nofollow and noindex robots meta tag.

"Nofollow" instruction provides a way for webmasters to tell search engines "don't follow links on this page" via meta tag or "don't follow this specific link" via rel attribute on the link elements. Some search engines will still follow the link but exclude it from their ranking calculation.

If you've already installed the extension and don't know how it works, you can go to the NoFollow Test page that will show you the basics.

How to use

  • Once you have the extension installed just open a webpage and if there are any nofollow links they will be outlined.
  • If extension is getting in your way on some website you can just temporary disable it from the extension menu and select "Temporary Disable".
  • To customize the extension go to extension options (left click on the extension button in the browser toolbar, select options)
  • NOTE: When adding websites to the exceptions list, you need to enter only domain names (like this:, don't use prefix http(s) or page names.
