Make wordpress menu links nofollow
By default all your wordpress menu items are dofollow. In each menu item you will have an option to add a link relationship where you can add nofollow simply. But this is an advanced menu option which is hidden by default. To bring this option you have to check Link Relationship (XFN) in your screen options. Here is how you do it.
Step 1: Login to your wordpress dashboard and navigate to Appearance >> menus.
Step 2: Now under menu system drop down any menu item that you have organized.
Step 3: You will see an option named “Link Relationship (XFN)”. If you don’t see it then scroll your window to the top, drop down screen options at the right corner and check on Link Relationship (XFN) option.
Step 4: Now this option will be added to all your menu items. Strictly add nofollow in that field and wordpress will automatically make that item nofollow.
Save menu when everything is perfectly organized.
