Default Effective Knowledge About Do Follow And No Follow Tag

Linking is the piece of HTML code added to an anchor text that tells the search engines whether or not it should pass authority along the site or not.For that purpose In 2005, Matt Cutts, the Google’s webspam team head and Jason Shellon of Blogger brought up a new attribute in HTML codes i.e NOFOLLOW.
"Nofollow is a HTML tag added to the link anchor text" Like

<a href=”your link URL” rel=”nofollow”>your link name</a>

This is automatically done. means when you comment with the link, the NoFollow attribute will be added automatically.This link will produce less value and search engine crawlers would not follow them to index. So, such a link is useless as a piece of text.

The Do-follow backlinks get followed by the Search Engines and authority is filtered down to your site. It is the default attribute on any link, so it has the same effect of a normal backlink.It will have the attribute “rel=’dofollow’” instead of nofollow It is written as:

<a href “Your link URL” rel=”dofollow">link name</a>

Following video will help you to distinguish between do follow and no follow links, and also you will get complete knowledge of FireBug (Firefox add-on).

thanks for sharing with us, I think that most of us know the difference between do and no-follow, but dofollow links are much more desired by SEO optimizers which is expected because Google crawls them.

No follow are still great for traffic. If you are actually commenting and adding something to a blog many times you will get people to move over to your site to read your information. The other thing is that you should have a mix of do follow and no follow, this gives you a more natural look to your link building profile.

Thanks dear for these tips. I am in a fix as sometimes the nofollow links count on your statistics. I dont know why this happens.
