Blogger blog Image rel = ? what


Friends, I’m a regular reader of this awesome forum.We all know that Blogger blog images hosted on Picasa, so passing link juice will be passing it to Picasa, i think. So is it wise to insert a rel=nofollow attribute in order to prevent that? I got a big confusion with this problem, Please solve this confusion… :confounded:


Who said blogger images are hosted on picasa? I guess they are hosted on blogspot servers 1.bp,2.bp,3.bp,4bp


Nafees, are you sure about this? This is very important for me


Yes I am Sure but still wait for @shivansh to come here



The Image URLs which starts with lh*.googleusercontent always hosted on Picasa. For 3.bp, 1.bp, 2.bp, 4.bp, they are hosted in Blogger Servers. So, no need to add nofollow tags in them.


Thanks @Shivansh, Nafees …

Please confirm, This is correct?

@Brijesh You don’t need to add any external XML, since Google using it’s own XML format.

Yes, You are right, Google hosted all the images in picasa album, If you open your picasa album, then you will find all the images, in one folder name and that is your blog name. But it will not visible to all.

So to visible every images, on public. Blogger system hosted all the images in own serve 1.bp, 2.bp server, they hosted on different sub domain just because it load faster. You can learn about this on Stackover flow, their you will see how sub domain help to serve content faster over browser.

And you are right, all the images are served with the hyperlinks. for example. <a href="link"><img src="" alt="text"></a> . So here, you have seen hyperlink, so obviously that will pass pagerank.

Now, if you add nofollow tag, then it is not mean you will save your pagerank. it is just use to don’t pass the pagerank, but you remain pagerank, will not flow to other. i.e. if your page have 5 pagerank, and you have placed 5 links on that, and 3 are followed link, and 2 are nofollowed, then your 3 links will get only 1 pagerank, it will not distribute to others. and that is called pagerank sculpting.

So, I suggest to you don’t include nofollow tag, on images. because it does not help to save your pagerank, also by using that, your images will not indexed on Google. Hope it helps :slight_smile:
