In this article I will give a tutorial on how to make a nofollow link on wordpress easily with the help of a plugin.
The Gutenberg plugin is a new text editor that has been in default since WordPress 5.0 and above.

Understanding NoFollow Links
NoFollow is an attribute given to a link to tell search engines not to aim at a link. For example in URLs in HTML format, nofollow links can be marked with the rel = “nofollow” attribute.

Links made on wordpress are DoFollow links. this means that search engines can crawl dofollow links and will be indexed according to the quality of the content created and directed to the link.
