What are DoFollow NoFollow Backlinks for beginners:

Free quality SEO Backlinks are most impartant part of SEO strategy. Backlinking with other sites is a good SEO tactic to rank well in search engines. I just say every time to my visitors that getting free backlinks is not difficult but the thing is that you have to get some high quality backlinks from well ranking websites. If you are creating number of backlinks from various websites but you don’t know which is the best and high backlink or not? The newbie’s are also confused about DoFollow NoFollow Backlinks. That’s why I am going to create this post where you can learn about dofollow nofollow backlinks strategy. So let’s get into detail of this factor of Search Engine Optimization.

What are DoFollow NoFollow Backlinks?


1) DoFollow links

By default all links are dofollow links in SEO terminology. First of all Google bots/spiders/crawlers when crawl your website they find external links point to other various websites. After that if links are DoFollow I mean if there is no any nofollow attribute (rel=”nofollow”) in coding of that link then Google bots follow all links and link juice gets passed. For example;

<a href=””  rel=”dofollow”> SEO Experts </a>

<a href=””  rel=”external”> SEO Experts </a>

Note: In the above code there is rel=”dofollow” and rel=”external”, its mean this link is dofollow link or if there is no any attribute from these codes that link also will be treated as “DoFollow” link. Then these link gets transferred the value of link juice in the term of SEO.

SEO Tip: Don’t buy backlinks from any site. Just start creating quality backlinks manually from various well rank websites or start commenting on dofollow blog sites, dofollow forums and more…

2) NoFollow Links:

NoFollow links are those links which Google bots do not follow and do not pass link juice value to other linking pages. For example;

<a href=””  rel=”nofollow”> SEO Experts </a>

In this above coding there is one nofollow attribute like rel=”nofollow”, its mean that Google bots will not follow this link and will not pass link juice. But nofollow links are just for Google crawlers not for readers. Readers can still get benefits from these nofollow links by clicking on that link. For example if you commented on blogs or forum or give answer of questions, might your comments attract readers and they want to know more about you. And you can get traffic from these nofollow links as well.
