Dofollow links allow 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' links are crawled by search engine bots and thus they contribute to website back-link building.

Example: <a href=”http://www.example.com/” rel=”dofollow”>Link Text</a>

'No follow' links are never crawled by search engine spiders and hence they do not contribute to back-link building. Both types of links are used to build traffic for your website and helps in keyword ranking in search engines.

Example: <a href=”http://www.example.com/” rel=”nofollow”>Link Text</a>

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. Though some time back Google made it clear that they don’t consider nofollow link attributes but weightage of such links are really less. Even though, it’s a good practice to use Nofollow link attribute to those link, where you don’t want to pass link-juice.

An example of Nofollow Link:

<a href=”http://www.google.com/” rel=”nofollow”>Google</a>

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. This means when you are linking to any website or page, use the targeted keyword as anchor text.

An example of Dofollow Link:

<a href=”http://www.google.com/”>Google</a>

Note: By default all the hyperlinks are dofollow. So, you don’t need to do anything to make a link do-follow.
