Difference Between NoFollow and DoFollow Links

The difference between NoFollow and DoFollow links is a pretty strait-forward concept.

DoFollow links are counted as backlinks by search engines. The more backlinks you have the better your site will rank. Many people spam a link to their website on blog comments, forums, etc; hoping that the site’s links are DoFollow. If the site uses the “NoFollow” HTML attribute for its outgoing hyperlinks, then you would not receive any backlink credit from search engines who crawl the page, since they won’t follow the link. DoFollow links help increase both your traffic and backlinks which is most beneficial to you.

NoFollow links do not give you any backlinks or search engine credit. They are still indexed, but do not provide any substantial value to your site. NoFollow links are only beneficial for increasing traffic to your website. They do not hurt your site at all so they should complement your other DoFollow links.

In conclusion, adding both NoFollow and DoFollow links back to your website will help you achieve success. And please don’t spam your links!
