Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

How to Remove Links to Commenter's Profiles in Blogger

If you are signed into your Google account, each time you leave a message on a Blogger blog the link will point to your Blogger profile unless the blogger has enabled name/url.  From a blogger's perspective each time a link is left in this manner link love goes to the Blogger profile page with no link love going to the commenter's blog.  This creates a hole in your PR and if you have a large number of them can create a rather large hole in your PR.  An workaround solution was to manually strip the url which does work nicely unless you have a lot of commenters.  An easier solution is to change the template HTML by removing a small piece of code.  How to remove the links to commenter's profiles was gratiously shared in the Blogger Help forum.  This is a nice solution because it removes the work of having manually remove these types of links.
