As you said no-follow links do not pass authority to the target page so one should try to get some no-follow links or totally ignore those types of links?

Building only Do-follow backlinks will look shady and could be considered a black hat SEO; you should build a mixture of no-follow and do-follow backlinks.

Moreover, these backlinks are not bad; they can still drive traffic to your website, they only don't pass the authority to your website.

Some people maintain a 30:70 (nofollow/dofollow) ratio, and some prefer 50:50.

From my knowledge, we cannot completely ignore the no follows links, because it indireclty helpful for SEO (Google knows about Nofollow HTML tags, they've worked something & recognized by algorithm),

I am sure your information would benefit everybody who enters this way of site advancement, but I am unsure that it would help in total. I am saying that just because I don't see in your text some helpful programs, which are very important not just for beginners but also for advanced SEO users.

Thank you for sharing this information about SEO with us. Indeed, SEO today is developing a lot and is of significant importance for today's businesses, especially online ones. Without SEO, I would not have managed to open an online business. I'm doing very poorly in this regard. Half a year ago, I opened an online store. and SEO has played a significant role in the success of my business.

Yes, backlinks are 100% important for SEO.

Backlinks are hyperlinks from one website to another's page. Backlinks are regarded as "votes" for a given website by Google and other major search engines. Organic search engine ranks are higher for pages with a large number of backlinks.

Backlinks are the Important part of an Off-Page SEO, Backlinks helps you increase your DA and PA of your website. And helps your site rank high on search engine. In todays SEO the latest update is about Spam score, While making any links we shall tack care about the spam score of that website where we are making links, If the spam score is high we should avoid making links there because it will harm our website and increase our websites spam score.

Hey, great post on backlinks in SEO! Back when I started my blog, I underestimated their power. It wasn't until a fellow blogger shared their experience that I realized their importance. Like a chain reaction, quality backlinks boosted my site's visibility.

Google still views backlinks as valuable indicators of trust and authority. However, relevance matters more than ever. Links from high-quality, thematically relevant sites hold more weight than random links.

Google prioritizes natural backlink profiles. Avoid manipulative tactics like link buying or schemes. So, focus on creating informative, engaging content that people naturally want to link to. Share it strategically on social media and relevant communities.

it's crucial to emphasize that while backlinks remain essential for SEO, the quality and relevance of those links are paramount. Google's algorithms are increasingly sophisticated, rewarding organic and contextually relevant link-building strategies.

One effective approach is to foster genuine relationships within your industry or niche. Engage with influencers, thought leaders, and other websites with authority in your field. By providing valuable content and building authentic connections, you're more likely to earn high-quality backlinks naturally.

Remember, the goal is not just to accumulate backlinks but to establish your website as a trusted and authoritative source within your niche. Consistently producing valuable content and fostering meaningful relationships will ultimately lead to sustainable SEO success.

While backlinks are indeed vital for SEO, their value lies not just in quantity but also in quality. Natural links and diverse sources are essential for a healthy backlink profile. However, the focus should remain on creating valuable content rather than solely chasing links.

When it comes to acquiring backlinks, tactics like guest posting and broken link building can be effective, but they require thoughtful execution. Blindly pursuing backlinks without considering relevance and authenticity can lead to diminishing returns.

Ultimately, in the ever-evolving landscape of SEO, maintaining integrity and prioritizing user experience should guide our approach to backlink acquisition. It's not just about getting links; it's about providing value and fostering genuine connections.

For sure No-Follow links should not be ignored. I've heard many opinions that even No-Follow links pass some juice from the donor website, although not as much as Follow links.
However, as mentioned above, No-Follow links are excellent for driving traffic to a website. All truly popular sites only allow No-Follow links. If we talk about Facebook, YouTube, Reddit, Quora, they are indispensable sources of traffic. These platforms are where websites that don't make it to Google's first page get traffic.

But I don't exclude the fact that there are also quite popular sites that offer Follow links, but to which not everyone has access. Such sites are gold mines.
