Nofollow or Dofollow

Hi All,

Just wondered when submitting, Do you go for 'Nofollow' or 'Dofollow' with recent updates?

All the best
Jay

If nofollow link gives me much traffic than do follow link which is not relevant and not any use to my website, I will definitely go for no-follow.

I don't even care. I submit to quality directories only. I have my own ways of checking a directory out to know if it's a quality one or an owner who has no clue how to run one. lol

It doesn't matter if these are no follows as long these are quality, an example of no follow directory listing is hotfrog.

Mostly, I prefer PR, DA, Alexa, Relative Niche Topics ETC!

Also, You can directly search on Google for fresh data for the same...

there is a percentage of dofollow and nofollow links to your site that you need to care about. on google forum there are a few articles about this. you should craefully read them.

The main idea is that you don't have to have too many dofollow vs nofollow and viceversa. it's kind of confusing but as long as you do only white hat seo you should be fine.

There are many factors in googles algorithm. The largest factor has to be backlinks. When calculating its backlinks algorithm it only takes into account links that are NOT marked as nofollow. Some people have suggested that you need a balance of do-follow and no-follow but that is nonsense. Google will completely ignore links marked as nofollow. It won't consider how many nofollow links you have in comparision. However, one other factor in Googles algorithm is probably traffic. Some the more links you have, the more chance of direct trafffic. So nofollow links aren't completely bad.

Don't care about "nofollow" and "dofollow". The one you should pay attention to is quality link. Although "nofollow" is not so good as dofollow in value. So if you can build on may dofollow links, then it will be great.

I do not care about both dofollow or nofollow links,
Just do the submission to the directories.
Normally it won't give much traffic but backlinks.
If it does, I would appreciate.

It is without a doubt that google does take Nofollow into consideration and some case studies have already proven this.

Love reading these replies in here. lol

I have always didn't give a.... about these 2 terms. I just write blog posts, comments and do it in a quality way or at least give it my best shot and use my SEO tools to pay attention to certain things to then focus on.
