Google and WordPress

Joost de Valk, from Yoast but a person who is super tight with WordPress, said WordPress will adopt the new link attributes announced by Google the other day. He said it will be introduced in the next release because "it's a one line change" to the code base.

Specifically he is talking about having links in comments tagged not with just the nofollow link attribute but the rel="ugc" for user generated content link attribute.

Joost said he will make sure this is done in the next release.

Here is his tweet:

This is in response to the tweet about the new link attributes, including how the nofollow changes to a hint, the new rel="sponsored" and the new rel="ugc" link attributes. You can learn more about those over here.
