If you are paranoid like me about adding nofollow to your external links on your site, then this is the perfect free. You can automatically add NoFollow to all external links in your website. Adding rel = NoFollow to the link will not pass any link juice to the site you are linking to which is critical to your website Search Engine Optimization. This free is called = Follow NoFollow Control.
