Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link.That means if the website owner is linking back to you with nofollow attributes, it does not pass on link juice. Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink.

A no follow link is a link that does not count as a point in the page’s favor, does not boost PageRank, and doesn’t help a page’s placement in the SERPs, do follow link is the opposite. Both can contribute on your website popularity.

Nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct search engines bots that a hyperlink should not influence the link target’s ranking in the search engine’s index. It is intended to reduce the effectiveness of certain types of search engine spam, thereby improving the quality of search engine results and preventing spamdexing from occurring in the first place.

Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link.That means if the website owner is linking back to you with nofollow attributes, it does not pass on link juice. Only Humans will be able to follow the links.

Nofollow connections traits don't permit web index bots to take after link.That implies if the site proprietor is connecting back to you with nofollow qualities, it doesn't go on connection juice. Just Humans will have the capacity to take after the connections. Despite the fact that some time back Google made it clear that they don't consider nofollow connection characteristics yet weightage of such connections are truly less. Despite the fact that, it's a decent practice to utilize Nofollow connection credit to those connection, where you would prefer not to pass connection juice.

Dofollow connections permit google (all web indexes) to tail them and achieve our site. Giving us join juice and a backlink. On the off chance that a website admin is connecting back to you with this connection both Search Engine and Humans will have the capacity to tail you. The most ideal approach to give somebody dofollow adoration is permitting catchphrase in the grapple content. This implies when you are connecting to any site or page, utilize the focused on watchword as stay content.

Follow links are links that count as points, pushing SEO link juice and boosting the page rank of the linked-to sites, helping them go higher in the SERPs as a result.

The no follow and dofollow links are very important in terms of search engine ranking and to get traffic. Sometimes getting no follow links help your website to get more traffic. But it is recommended the ratio of
dofollow links must be higher than nofollow.

Also apart from the no follow and dofollow currently SEO marketer the also focusing on other factors like Domain authority and Page authority.

I think in the seo process both no follow and do follow links matter
do follow count as back link to the site from search engine. It's important for site ranking to get quality back links.no follow doesn't count as back link to the site from search engine but it can be helpful as an traffic generate source if it's come from high pr sites.

I completely agree with you, for any website to rank in Google it need to have Dofollow as well as Nofollow backlink. A website with only one type of link i.e. Dofollow or Nofollow can get penalized by the Google.

Do follow Back links is the most powerful way to influence search engines to redirect a lot of traffic to your site. Search engine crawlers crawl the whole content on your webpage including images, links, keywords etc.

No follow links can be relevant to your post’s context and can come from the sources which have a potential to generate high referral traffic.

A dofollow link will pass the SEO strength of the page to the site that it links to. A nofollow link, in theory, will not do this. That's the main difference between the two.

By that argumentation, you may assume that a nofollow link will not help you rank for a keyword, but I don't think this is completely the case. Having a link to your site in any capacity may improve the "authority" of your site. Moz uses Page Authority and Domain Authority to measure this and, while not an official Google metric, it stands to say that if you have 2 identical sites, one has 5 nofollow links and the other has none, Google may well think that the site with the links has more authority or trust and may treat it more favorably.

As for seeing if a link is dofollow or nofollow, you can either inspect the website source code, or a convenient and hassle-free way to test is with toolbar like Moz toolbar. That toolbar contains an option to highlight the links on the page - green links are dofollow and pink links are nofollow.

If you check website with toolbar, you should be able to see a pattern of whether they allow for dofollow or nofollow links - but in the end, this is at the discretion of the webmaster. !-! :D
