    To determine how well your site ranks in Google, Google uses the number of links other on external websites which point to your website to determine the Pagerank of your site.

    When sites with a high Pagerank link to your site, this has a higher impact on your Pagerank than sites with a low Pagerank linking to your site. In other words, sites "pass on" their Pagerank through their links.

    The exception to this is where a link has the attribute rel="nofollow". In this case, the site which hosts the link does not pass on its Pagerank and as a result it does not make as much of a difference on the ranking of your site.

    So links which do not have rel="nofollow" (in other words "Do follow links") are much better for your site in terms of how it ranks on Google than are nofollow links.

    "nofollow" exists and is a valid attribute. "dofollow", "do follow", and "no follow" do not exist and are not valid attributes. The only practical purpose for "dofollow"/"do follow" is sheeple spotting.

    Dofollow isn't real. Nofollow is. There's really not much more to say about their "differences" beyond that.

    Good timing, Andrew. It's pretty cold outside here in the Toronto area today. Can I make a sweater out of your wool?

    Andrew, I get what you're saying...but you gloss over the fact that "do follow" is just a made up term. There is no "do follow." Adding rel="dofollow" does not pass more "juice" to links. Posts like this perpetuate that myth.

    I don't understand why people can't say something along the lines of "non-nofollow" when referring to links that do not have the attribute...I know that it's a double negative, but at least it's based on a real term.

    The phrase "that do not include the rel='nofollow' attribute" works.

    When you create the link in your release, a "nofollow" tag is what you add its HTML code. These tags provide people with more information about your products and services, while telling search engines not to visit the site you've linked to. Make sure to add "rel="nofollow"" at the end of your hyperlink when you link to a site in your release.

    Do follow links are hyperlinks that tell the search engines to pass along their page rank to influence on outbound links. This factor affects a lot for SEO purpose. If you get more do follow links, then search engines will work out your links as back links and you have more chances to receive positive values for your site's ranking.

    No follow links are exactly the opposite. These hyperlinks don't have the ability to pass on a page rank status to other websites. No follow links don't consider as crawling links from search engines and so the link associated with No follow websites won't crawl by search engines.
