What is Dofollow and Nofollow Blog?

Dofollow and nofollow are the important terms in the field of blogging. If you are a blogger you know the concept of commenting on Dofollow blogs to get  link juice from that blog. Here I want to clarify these two terms which are confusing amongst most of the newbie bloggers.

Nofollow Blogs

To know about Dofollow blogs you must know about the term Nofollow. Why the term nofollow introduced by anyone. For all of your kind information, Nofollow is introduced by Google in 2005. In the official statement of Google it was said that:

If you’re a blogger (or a blog reader), you’re painfully familiar with people who try to raise their own websites’ search engine rankings by submitting linked blog comments like “Visit my discount pharmaceuticals site.” This is called comment spam, we don’t like it either, and we’ve been testing a new tag that blocks it. From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel=”nofollow”) on hyperlinks, those links won’t get any credit when we rank websites in our search results. This isn’t a negative vote for the site where the comment was posted; it’s just a way to make sure that spammers get no benefit from abusing public areas like blog comments, trackbacks, and referrer lists.

Look at the two links:

1)     <a href=”http://www.example.com/”>most useful medicines </a>

2)     <a href=”http://www.example.com/rel=”nofollow”>most useful medicines </a>

The first link is a normal link with no Nofollow attribute while the second one is a Nofollow link because it contains Nofollow attribute.

So, if we introduce a term “rel=nofollow” in any link then the link becomes nofollow.

You can make any link nofollow by the inbuilt editor of the WordPress. You can also nofollow any link from Windows live writer. By default all the links in the comment section are nofollow.

Dofollow Blogs

Dofollow blogs are those blogs which simply do not use nofollow attribute. So the link structure of the blog should be like

<a href=”http://www.myblog.com/”>most useful medicines </a>

i.e. a normal link.

Dofollow are those links which pass value to the search  engines and it make its search engine ranking improve. There are many bloggers who think comment is a nice source of back link . For this purpose the dofollow all the links in the comment section. One can use any of the given WordPress Plugins Do Follow plugin, DoFollow and Nofollow Case by Case, Follow URL to remove nofollow attribute from the comment.

But these dofollow blogs are in constant touch of Webmasters and SEO personals and they don’t mind to spam the keywords through the blog comments. There are many dofollow blog from which you can start commenting. But remember not to spam the keywords.

    • Very nice question Jaspal, The reason behing nofollow all the links is that I want to maintain the ratio of inbound link to outbounds link of my page which is actually good for SEO.
