Is there a google search operator to find dofollow blogs?

I sometimes get asked whether there is an easy way to find dofollow blogs with a simple google operator.
And while it would be really nice if we could find follow blogs just by typing in something like
dofollow:on mykeyword
it just does not work. And all rumors that this might come is nothing but wishful thinking – I don’t think that google will ever have an interest to show that data. And to be honest – for the vast majority of google users it also has no value at all.

Of course there are other search tricks that can help you find good candidates, for example if you search for “You comment, we follow” – but ultimately all this just finds user statements and is not 100% reliable as even if the blog owner had intended to make his or her blog dofollow there might be technical problems preventing it (outdated plugins, coding errors, you name it).

This means we will have to cope with the methods we have currently, like the blog search here on the start page of

Do-Follow and WordPress 2.7

What a shame!
Now I run a blog that is all about Do-Follow blogs and how to find Do-Follow blogs and I am not able to remove the Nofollow tag on my own blog!
Thanks to a hint from one of my readers, I finally noticed that the links on my blog were actually nofollow – wordpress’ standard…
What had happened? First I had the suspicion that a new version of the Platinum SEO plugin, which I can highly recommend, superseded the setting from my “Follow URL” plugin… but after some research I found out, that it was just an incompatibility issue with wordpress 2.7. I now use Nofollow Free as the plugin of choice and the problem is solved ­čśë
