                     What is Nofollow and Dofollow Links?


SEO means that the Search Engine Optimization Whenever we talk about it, there are some common words that have great significance. Such as bots, crawling, noindex, doindex, nofollow, dofollow etc. All these words put their own importance in SEO.

In this post, we will learn about Nofollow and Dofollow in detail. Especially newbies who are new in SEO and still do not know about Nofollow and Dofollow, this post would prove very helpful for them.

Before talking about the Nofollow and the Dofollow link, I want to explain to you a small thing.

Suppose you are a blogger who has just created a blog. Now Google, how Bing will know that you have created a blog. You will need to submit your blog sitemap in google for this. When you submit a sitemap, google bots (you can also call it a spider. It works because it goes to any website and scan whatever data is there) will crawl your blog and index your site So that any reader can find you in the search engine.

Now it is up to you that you want to index an index from page to page and not an angle. We can do this using index and no index.

So let's talk now of Nofollow and Dofollow.

What are Nofollow and Dofollow and what are the differences between them?

First understand this term

Link Juice: When you hyperlink an article, page of a website, google bots follow that link and it passes the link juice. This link helps in the ranking of the juice article and also improves domain authority.

Nofollow links simply search engine bots do not allow to follow the link. Only humans can follow the links.

Example of Nofollow Link:

<a href="" rel="nofollow"> use blogs </a>

Dofollow links allow Google and other search engines to follow the link by giving us link juice and a backlink. If a webmaster is linking you again with this link, then both search engine and person will be able to follow you.

When you link to a website or page, use the as anchor text as the Targeted Keyword.

Example of Dofollow link:

<a href=""> use blogs </a>
By default, all hyperlinks are Dofollow. So you will not need to do anything to make a link a dofollow. Simply add rel = "nofollow" to Nofollow.

Nofollow and Dofollow link should be used


If you are linking to a high-quality website
If you are copying someone's original work as reference

Low-quality sites such as casino, gambling, or porn sites
Unrelated content If you are on blog technology but you have linked the cooking websites
Affiliate links
Comment section Here are the maximum chances of spamming on here.
How to check if a link is Nofollow or Dofollow

Right click on the link you want to check in your browser and select "Inspect Element". You will have a window open with its HTML code. There you can see that the links are dofollow or Nofollow

Right below I have given a screenshot of the comment section on ShoutMeHindi, in which you can see the nofollow attribute.

Important Notice: -

Recently Google has said that it still count nofollow link as an outgoing link in terms of distribution of Page Rank from your page. Still it depends on where the nofollow link has been placed. Having the Nofollow link at the bottom of the page has the least effect and when it is placed in the top it has some different effect.

No-Follow Types

Robots Meta Tag: <meta name = "robots" content = "nofollow">
It tells bots / crawlers / spiders that they do not follow the links of full page.

Link Attribute: <a href="" rel="nofollow">
It tells the search engine that the terms of the ranking of pages do not count the link.

That's all for today Nofollow and Dofollow are an important factor in SEO ranking. If you want to know about SEO in detail then read this guide.
