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.

Link 'rel attribute' defines the type of link and by checking this attribute you can very well judge whether it's a dofollow link or nofollow link. <a href="http://exampledemo.com" rel="dofollow">Example1</a> OR.
nofollow is a value that can be assigned to the rel attribute of an HTML a element to instruct some search engines that the hyperlink should not influence the ranking of the link's target in the search engine's index.

Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink. If a webmaster is linking back to you with this link both Search Engine and Humans will be able to follow you. The best way to give someone dofollow love is allowing keyword in the anchor text
