I'm Confused in nofollow, dofollow, follow backlinks



I’m still confused in Follow, Nofollow and dofollow backlinks. Please suggest me where can i get do follow and i can apply dofollow, nofollow and follow backlinks.


There are two kinds of links, bro:

  • Dofollow (or Follow) Links.

  • Nofollow Links.

By default, all the links on your blog content area will be dofollow. So, when you are writing an article on your blog, and if you are mentioning:

<a href="https://hellboundbloggers.com">HellBound Bloggers (HBB)</a>

Then this is a dofollow link. Whereas, if you add rel=“nofollow” here, it’ll become ‘nofollow.’ Like this:

<a href="https://hellboundbloggers.com" rel="nofollow">HellBound Bloggers (HBB)</a>

This is how dofollow and nofollow links will look, bro. Now let me explain the benefits:

When you give a dofollow link to hellboundbloggers.com, it’s like giving a good recommendation to Google that we are a valuable resource and adding our blog link makes your content much better.

Now, when you give a nofollow link, it’s like giving an average recommendation to Google, but it’s still a good sign of trust.

This is how you should see for your own blog. You should be giving a decent number of both dofollow and nofollow links. There should be a proper ratio for this.

Just a small tip if you have a new blog, don’t give backlinks to all the websites unless you build enough for your blog.

For other blogs, say, when you are contributing guest articles, you should ask them for a ‘dofollow’ link instead of ‘nofollow.’ Because a dofollow link on your guest article will help you to build quality backlinks, making your blog rank much better.

I know I might have confused you a bit if you are new to this, but this is what it is mate! Do let us know if you have any queries. :smiley:


so if i do guest post on some website than my site link should be <a href="https://phonesdiary.com">PhonesDiary</a> or

<a href="https://phonesdiary.com/xiaomi-launches-mi-music/">Xiaomi launches MI Music in India</a>

like this that is dofollow and you should recommend this right?

Another question is where should I use nofollow links and where I should use dofollow?


I would prefer both! Always request for two backlinks and use both these formats there.

If your article is around 1000 words, then make sure you keep a good ratio of both dofollow and nofollow links there, for reputed resources like Wikipedia, The Guardian, BBC, etc. you can keep their links as “dofollow” as they add more value to the content. But for the links like social media profiles, random links to other sources, etc… you can keep them as “nofollow” as they won’t really add any proper value to the content. :slight_smile:
