    0 - ∞ doesn't matter!

    There's no special number. But if you're trying to artificially create a link profile, you'd do well to stay close to the numbers that sites with natural profiles have.

    at a conference a few months ago, Cutts said that the percentage of nofollow links on the internet that google sees is in the "low single digits". Backing that up web crawlers like Open Site Explorer report around 2% - 5% of all links are nofollow.

    And if you look at sites with truly natural link profiles, they usually have no more than 5-10% nofollow links.

    Hope that helps.

    There is no "special formula",

    Do those nofollow links send you traffic? If you answered yes, then as many links as you can get. If they don't send any traffic, then they are completely useless for SEO / promoting your website. The same goes with dofollow links imho.

    Do not increase more than 8% of total.

        Doubt it. A lot of people, unfortunately, like to claim things with zero proof.

        Why 8%? Why not 9, 10, 10.5, etc?

      Why only waste 50% of your time? Why not go whole-hog
      and waste 100% of it? You'll get the same results.

      The reason why Cutts says to keep it low is very simple:
      NOFOLLOW SIGNALS SPAM

      So, how much spam do you want google to signal from you?

      Not all nofollow is the same. Twitter, wikipedia, are 2 good ones.
      IMHO, does not get google hate as much as others.

      Google is smart enough now to know when spam is spam,
      nofollow or not.

      Nofollow has changed over time. Google knows it was like holding
      water in your hand. They are using other signals, as well as nofollow,
      to track spam.

      There is nothing natural thing about nofollow. Why people continue with
      this line of BS is just unnatural itself.

      Nofollow is a made up attribute from google. People must add it.
      And you call that "natural"?

        Exactly.

        It isn't far fetched for some wise ass Google Engineer to go ..you know what ? "Sites with 25%, 50% nofollow'd incoming links are typically trying to link spam. Let's make that part of the set signals we use in the next Penguin Update to identify link spammers".

        I say part because you can have alot of nofollow in the presence of other good signals and you'd be fine. But in presence of other bad signals, it would be like being convicted on a mountain of circumstantial evidence.

        Of course, there would be a little collateral damage with the incorporation of such a signal (if they haven't already). If the last two years has shown anything its that they gladly accept a few good sites getting hit in order to take out a bunch of bad ones.

        None of us will ever know either way, but it's very possible.

    What ever your back links may be do follow or no follow, your links should look natural. Also links from relevant sites are valued more by Google.
