    Does REL=”NOOPENER NOREFERRER” to a link affect SEO?


    In my wordpress version 4.7.4 with every internal links REL=”NOOPENER NOREFERRER” tag occurs. Does it affect SEO? Does it affect ranking of our website. Feedback on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    I think this has become standard on wordpress recently... It's designed to fix a vulnerability and no - it won't affect your SEO or ranking and it does not need "resolving".

    There is more information here on github and jitbit

    That's right. This came up in a Webmaster Hangout the other month. John Mueller said that Google ignores these attributes and passes all signals normally for these links as long they don’t have a nofollow.

    Don't worry... this tag in a link don't affect SEO. Add rel="noopener noreferrer" to target="_blank"
