What is the difference between do follow and no follow links?


New Member
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 Nofollow link does not count as a point in the page favor. This type of link does not boost page rank and does not help to page placement in SERP.

No Follow link created as:
<a href="link_webpage" rel="nofollow">link text</a>

Dofollow Link passes a credit and they definitely help the website, in order to achieve ranking in SERP.

Dofollow link created as:
<a href="link_webpage" rel="external">link text</a>
