Do Follow Backlink and nofollow link are basic terms in SEO. First, you should search about it in Google if not found satisfied answers then come back with your query.

no follow links are not passed through search engines boat and therefore cannot be catched or indexed. Dofollow link is a kind of hyperlink and it passes through all search engines and it puts impact over page rank..
Ok, do you think we need to put rel="dofollow" into link or not?
if don't add that, Google will understand as default as dofollow link?
for example:
Code:
<a rel="dofollow" title="your title" href="yourlink.html">Your link</a> 
<a title="your title" href="yourlink.html">Your link</a>
both are the same?

Hi Bob,

for example:
Code:
<a rel="dofollow" title="your title" href="yourlink.html">Your link</a> 
<a title="your title" href="yourlink.html">Your link</a>
both are the same?
It's not required to put rel="dofollow" attribute in your anchor tag, by default its dofollow, if you need to nofollow the links then it is required to put rel="nofollow" attribute in your anchor tag to stop passing the link juice.

Not required?
You mean, anchor tag never meant to be used in HTML Code or ever will be used?

by default its dofollow,
Wrong.
By default, w3scools tell us, there is hyperlink that doesn't have any Tags
such as "dofollow" or "nofollow"

if you need to nofollow the links then it is required to put rel="nofollow" attribute in your anchor tag to stop passing the link juice.
Required by who?
Yahoo, Bing and every other Search Engine care less about "nofollow"
and only Google who started this 'backlinks to build Page Rank" mess
now wants you to do dirty job and to kill links they want you to have
in a first place.

If Google doesn't like "backlinks" then let them cancel Page Rank scam
so people wouldn't have to deal with no existing created by Google crisis.

I mean rel="dofollow" is meaningless as there is no such attribute for anchor tag. Hope now you understand :rolleyes2:

Let me clear you if the link has rel="nofollow" attribute Googlebot will not follow the links, and doesn't passes link juice. :)

Agreed :thumb:

A No follow link is that link which doesn't consist any point within the favour of the page, doesn't facilitate to increase Pagerank of web site and doesn't facilitate the location to return up within the
SERP, however reversely Do follow link is that the link that helps website to urge an inbound link.

When Google bots are crawling a website they look for external links point to other websites. If this links is “do follow” then search engines will follows the link and so link juice gets passed.

If a search engine finds a “no follow” backlink it will just ignore the link and will not get deeper into crawling and no link juice is passed

Do follow links tells the search engine to follow the links and boost your website. Link juice will also passed in this do follow . No follow links doesn't tell the browser to follow and link juice will not pass here.

A normal hyper link in which Google and other search engine bots follows through the link is do follow link. I know this is too short to understand.

A link that doesnt allows search engines bots to follow through are no follow links. A no follow link is added with rel=”nofollow” attribute.

A do-follow link is a link which will go on the SEO advantages of the site where it is fabricated from to the hyper-linked site. This is the sort of backlink that link manufacturers will make for SEO strategies. Backlinks made at high PR sources will go on the link juices towards the hyper-linked website, in this way altogether enhancing its ranking position among the serp's.

A no-follow backlink is fundamentally a link that does not go on the SEO advantages of the source website to the web journal where the link focuses to. So it doesn't have any SEO esteem by any means, and they won't make any sense to the link profile that web search engines utilization to assess when positioning sites.

The search engine spam indexing and to improve the search engine results. Only Dofollow links pass link juice to the linked webpage and influence the target’s page rank.
Nofollow means probably it’s a link is set as nofollow, it means Google bot wont crawl the link and wont pass any link juice.

No. You are wrong.

Google does crawl nofollow links. They always have. They always will. When you are trying to index the entire internet, it would be absolutely stupid not to crawl nofollow links.

Why would it be stupid not to crawl nofollow links? What purpose does crawling them serve if the pages won't be indexed from the link? If the page isn't indexed, then it has no value to Google whatsoever.

Read this interview with Adam Lasnik (Google Employee). You might change your mind.

According to him, Google does not follow the link. Also according to him, Google will not index a page just because it has a nofollow link to it, even if that nofollow link comes from a high authority site like Wikipedia. The page has to be discovered some other way. What he said aligns perfectly with my own tests. I took a page with a decent amount of PageRank and pointed a nofollow link from that page to an orphan page that had useful unique content on it. The page did not get indexed. I left it go for two months to see if it would get indexed. It did not. I then pointed more nofollow links at the page from other sources. The page continued to not be indexed. I tried this more than once on different websites. It was consistently the same result.

The only way I got the orphan page indexed was to either put it in a sitemap or to point a regular "dofollow" hyperlink at it.

Here is Google's official stance on it. On that page they state "In general we do not follow them." I think the reason they say "in general" is because there are certain instances where they probably do follow them like from a trusted Twitter account even though Tweets are all nofollow.

Dofollow link passes link juice and they definitely help you much, in order to achieve good page rank. As it instructs search engine spiders to follow this link.

<a href = http://www.example3.org rel="external">Example3</a>

The above link is dofollow, generally when you left comment on other site, you will see links with rel external attribute, rel=”external” is just to represent that the link is external, it has nothing to do with backlink type.

More misinformation. First, there is no such thing as a dofollow tag. Second, nofollow/dofollow have nothing to do with communicating to spiders. Spiders crawl all links, no matter how they are tagged.

Nofollow/dofollow has to do with how Google treats the links. It has nothing to do with them being crawled or not.
