    Nofollow is an HTML attribute Backlink using Meta #rel by Matt Cutts of Google's Webspam team head and Jason Shellen of Blogger.com introduced on 18-01-2005.

    Normally, on a single page when you have a link from another website pointing back to your site, the Google search engine will scan for the beetles from the top down and when the link and the link doesn't add Nofollow tag, it will track which search to your website.
    Yourself for example a link pointing to another site about yourself like this:

    At the moment, I call this Backlink Nofollow because they've tagged rel = "nofollow" on that path, search engines will ignore and not visit his page.
    What is Dofollow backlink?
    From the Nofollow concept you can already understand what Dofollow. These are the properties that allows search engine beetle access and search the content on your page, from which will crawl out the other links which you cleverly placed on the site (Internal Link), this is very good to increase the prestige and quality for your website with reviews of Google.

    Specially for newbies who are new to SEO or people who are still not clear about Nofollow or dofollow, this post will be useful. Nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct search engines bots that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index

    Do follow links are those which allow search engines to follow link.
    Where as no follow links are those which don't allow search engine to follow link.

    But both links are good for success of website because both have their benefits.

    There is lot of difference. Its like day and night.

    There is a term called juice, which a website passess when it links to another website.


    Here are manjor differences:

    No follow:

    Don't pass the juice
    Consider the link as non trusted
    You don't get benefit of the website's high PR.

    Do follow:

    Passes the juice
    Consider the link as trusted
    Benefit of website's high PR
    Help is link building.

    Nofollow

    Link which contain Rel=”nofollow” HTML attribute is nofollow the attribute simply assist search engines to know more about the link. Whenever you found a little piece of code in your link i.e. Rel=”nofollow” it mean that the link is nofollow and these types of links does not impact the authority nor help you out to Improve Seo ranking or visibility of your website.

    Because rel nofollow tag is a noindex tag which has in fact a clear instruction for Search engines that do not try to index particular link.

    By adding the above mentioned code for noindex crawlers simply ignore it and do not give any value nor pass link juice which cannot be prolific for batter ranking in search engines.


    Dofollow

    It is a type of link which has a potential to improve the ranking and the credibility of your website in Google. By default every link is dofollow, link which does not contain Rel=”Nofollow” Attribute is dofollow and these are considered to be the most powerful links for any websites.

    These links allow search engine to doindex and pass link juice which is indeed the most vital thing for webmasters.The credit goes to Google who introduces dofollow link in 2005 to deeply filter search engine results for spam indexing.

    A no follow link is a link that does not count as a point in the page’s favor, does not boost PageRank, and doesn’t help a page’s placement in the SERPs. No follow links get no love. Theirs is a sad and lonely life.
    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

    Even though, it's a sound exercise to use No follow weblink feature to those weblink, where you don't want to move link-juice. Dofollow hyperlinks allow search engines (all look for engines) to adhere to them and achieve our website. ... If a website owner is backlinking to you with this weblink both Search Motor and People will be able to adhere to you.
