    Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link.That means if the website owner is linking back to you with nofollow attributes, it does not pass on link juice. ... Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink.

    Do follow and no follow are link attributes and contain instructions for search engine robots. Do follow links are crawled and indexed in search engines whereas no follow links are never crawled and indexed in search engines.

    It means search engines bots can't index your links if they find nofollow tags with your links. Only humans can follow the links. Nofollow Links are used to hide the website link from the search engines. Dofollow links are the links which allows search engines bots to index the links.

    The difference between a Dofollow and a Nofollow link is that a Dofollow link passes PageRank signals (some refer to this as SEO or link juice), and a Nofollow link doesn't.

    The only technical difference between the two is that a nofollow link has a nofollow tag. As a user, it's impossible to tell the difference between a nofollow and dofollow link. ... In fact, according to Google, nofollow links don't pass any PageRank. Google does not transfer PageRank or anchor text across these links.

    Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink. If a webmaster is linking back to you with this link both Search Engine and Humans will be able to follow you. The best way to give someone dofollow love is allowing keyword in the anchor text.

    Nofollow Link: A Link does not automatically ensure that a target webpage or link will not be crawled.

    Dofollow Link: A Link does automatically ensure that a target webpage or link will be crawled.
