XF 2.2 Disable external links already posted or prevent SEO from finding external links

We run a very big board with over 4 millions posts and we have an issue with spam related SEO because of the big amount of external links we have. Is there away to remove or disable external links or preferably prevent search engines bots from seeing/indexing external links. If there is a way to remove external links, how can we exclude external images?

Lets assume for the sake of my enquiry that all links on my board have a dofollow tag, how do I approach this to correct the issue?

Links in user-generated content are tagged as nofollow (and ugc), though by default this only applies to content posted by non-staff members. In XF 2.2+ this behavior can be controlled via the 'Bypass "nofollow" in submitted content links' permission.
