What are Backlinks ?

Backlinks are links point to your website from other websites.

In search engine optimization (SEO) terminology a backlink is a hyperlink that links from a Website or Blog, back to your blog or Website.

It is one of the best factor which search engines consider for ranking your site in SERP.

As a website or blog with more quality backlinks than it ranks better.

But every backlinks to your website is not quality backlink which help you to rank some of them are make harm to your website ranking.

So let me tell you in brief about No follow and Follow follow backlinks.

What is do follow follow Backlinks ?

As i wrote above do follow follow backlinks but its do follow backlinks. So why could i wrote do follow backlinks.

Because do follow backlinks are allowing search engine to follow the external links and crawl your link as well as provide your website link juice.

Which help you to get ranked easily on search engines.i.e Do follow backlinks.

These backlinks are important regarding SEO as they are tracked by search engines and the value of the links also gets transferred.

I will suggest you to build organic do follow backlinks not buy paid do follow backlinks it harms your ranking.

Example of do follow backlinks:

<a href=https://nktricks.com  rel=”dofollow”>Nktricks</a>
<a href=https://nktricks.com rel=”external”>Nktricks </a>

<a href=”https://nktricks.com”>Nktricks</a>

What is No follow Backlinks ?

No follow backlinks are those backlinks which do not allow. It means that if any websitelinking back to your websitewith no follow attributes, it does not pass link juice.

These backlinks are only follow by humans not by search bots.

These backlinks are generally created via blog commenting because maximum blog comments passes no follow attribute to link.

Example of no follow backlinks :

<a href=”https://nktricks.com” rel=”nofollow”>Nktricks</a>

Types Of No-Follow

Robots Meta Tag :

<meta name=”robots” content=”nofollow” />
This tells bots/crawlers/spiders not to follow links on the full page.

Link Attribute :

<a href=”http://www.google.com” rel=”nofollow”>
This tells search engines not to count the link in terms of ranking pages.

I will suggest you to build quality do follow backlinks but also build some no follow backlinks. Because if you created only lots of do follow backlink then google treats this as spam. If your blog as 82% of do follow and rest percentage means 18% of no follow backlinks then it’s OK for google.
