So let’s start today’s topic difference between dofollow backlinks and nofollow backlinks.

Hello everyone, in this new topic today we will learn about what is dofollow links and what is nofollow links, what is the difference between the two, although these two links have the same function connecting one website to another website also has some advantages there is also some disadvantage.

Although all of you will know that according to me, to connect one website to another website, we use these links which we also know as backlinks.

To connect the website to each other, we do only two things, we give a link to another website in our blog post or web page, whether it is a nofollow link or a dofollow link, but both the links link the website to each other.

Readers do not care about these two links because they are only reading your post, but search engines follow your blog or website only after seeing these two links.

Still don’t understand, let’s understand a little better.

If we give dofollow links to any website then search engine like google also follows other website and its post also starts giving importance. Because a dofollow link has been given to other websites on its own website and Google follows the command of these links, if there is a follow link then google will also follow that web page and if there is a nofollow link then Google will ignore it.

Now I hope you understand.

What Is Dofollow Backlinks

DoFollow link keeps a website connected to many websites and in the eyes of search engines, having a dofollow link in your website is a very good advantage because by having a follow link, the search engine increases the domain authority of your website and keywords ranking also.

What Is Nofollow Links

As I just told you about the dofollow links but in this case some of the things are reverse, nofollow link is a link that keeps websites connected to each other but search engines do not follow nofollow links.

History Of Nofollow Links

Nofollow links were first recognized in 2005 to control spam comments when spam comments became a major issue.

Where Do We Use Nofollow Links?

Nofollow links should be provided when you do not want to pass link juice and if you do not want to support the website which you have linked in your post, then you should add nofollow links to your links.

This is the situation for where you can use the nofollow link – For example Affiliate marketing, sponsored links, etc.

How to recognize nofollow links and dofollow links

Dofollow links – By the way, all links are dofollow links, if you do not change anything in them, but still do not doubt, so let me tell you that follow links will not have any rel = “nofollow” tag.

For example –  <ahref="http://yavbroblogging.com">blog</a>

Nofollow links – By the way, it is very easy to identify nofollow links because any link which has a rel=”nofollow” tag is a nofollow link.

For example – <a rel=”nofollow” href=”http://yavbroblogging.com”>blog</a>
