    SEO backlinks from Indie Hackers

    Right now IH adds rel="nofollow" attribute to all links that are posted on the website, including links that are on the user's profile page.

    While I understand that it's done with a goal to prevent low-quality links from getting SEO ranking, in the meantime would be nice to reward quality links that are posted by reputable users.

    For example, stackoverflow.com does exactly that. The link that's posted on the user profile page will not have "nofollow" attribute if the user has more than 2000 points.

    And from the other side, this can also encourage users to be more active on the community form.

    Curious what you all think?

    Correct me, do I understand correctly that the rel attribute with the nofollow value prohibits only bots from following the link? I'm still learning, I hope you understand. That is, if I post something here about SEO tools, all of you will see it, but not the Google search engine. This is true? And that's one thing that I see myself when performing this action. Another thing is what everyone else sees when I implement my plan. I have seen bots not following links with rel attributes. But do they see them?
