what is the difference between “nofollow” and “dofollow” link?September 19, 2017 at 4:22 PM #9926VirsenParticipant
Linking is the important part of Search Engine Optimization, either your linked to another site or your being linked by another site. Links in your blog or content, by default are dofollow. If its tagged with rel = nofollow, then it is nofollow link. The difference between them is explained below: If site with high DA or PA is linked with you, google increase your authority for dofollow links. But if it has used nofollow tag then google wont increase your authority.March 4, 2019 at 12:59 PM #15234WebXeros SolutionsParticipant
Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link. That means if the website owner is linking back to you with no-follow attributes, it does not pass on link juice.
Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink.August 31, 2019 at 6:24 AM #18733nikitikParticipant

Dofollow is simply the default state for a link. In another way, any link without the nofollow attribute is a dofollow link.
When another website links to you with a standard (aka dofollow) link, it can directly affect search engine rankings. because this link passes link equity from the linking page.
Nofollowed links are the hyperlinks with a rel=“nofollow” tag in HTML code of the link.
These links do not help you in the search engine rankings of the destination URL because Google does not transfer link equity.April 19, 2021 at 12:20 PM #30605DhanuParticipant
It doesn’t matter anymore. A Penguin update a year and a half ago made spammy back links irrelevant instead of harmful… That is unless you get a manual penalty but you’d have to have a lot more than just a high ratio of Dofollow linksSeptember 20, 2021 at 5:03 PM #31031etdigitalmarketingParticipant
Dofollow and nofollow backlinks are two different ways to identify a link and inform Google how to associate the website you’re linked to with your own. A dofollow link helps a website gain authority, whereas a nofollow link does not pass on link juice.October 22, 2021 at 5:29 PM #31097
