    As per my research nofollow links are not useful for your site, but the only benefit of nofollow link is traffic.

      Completely false.

      On a side note, why would you no follow internal links..that doesnt make any sense.

        I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with everyone that has posted so far saying that NoFollow links are useless except for clicks. Google keeps count of all of your NoFollow backlinks and it's only natural to have a mix of No/DoFollow.

        A backlinks a backlinks a backlink. Once you figure that out life will be easier. Plus, following PENGUIN, On-site optimization is more important than ever..

        CHEERS!

    no follow for external link. link juice is not share or transfer with other websites. PR juice will only crawl inside your website..

  • Mohairan,

    As mentioned be other members, no-follow links leading to your site will not pass on link authority. This means they will not count as a vote for the importance of your website and hence will not benefit your ranking in SERP’s. They can still be clicked on though which leads to increased traffic to your site and they can also help diversify your backlink profile.

    Hope that helps,

    I think Nofollow links wont do you a whole lot of good, but if your link profile is ALL dofollow, surely the googlebots will smell a rat? It's natural to have some nofollow...

      It is correct that nofollow links do not add value to your site because it will not share whatever juice or authority that website has.

      I'd go for nofollow for external links as when robots crawl your content they search for links on your page and if you tagged a link as nofollow then robots will crawl it as standard text and they will not bother checking where the link is taking them. This prevents the PR flow to these web sites tagged as nofollow.

    No Follow links don't follow your website and can't be counted as backlinks. How can they help you then? kindly explain.

    Why do u prefer building only no-follow links? These links are not much valuable. It has an added attribute "rel=nofollow" towards its end. This attribute tells search engine spiders not to crawl that particular link. These links only help in driving traffic towards your website.

    You can give Nofollow for external links. It will help decrease the outbound links on your site.

    No follow will never help you to boost your ranking, It can only be used to allow users to post no follow links on your site.

    The only nofollow that will even hint at increasing "SEO," is a twitter link.

    There is no reason to have outbound links on your site, and I certainly
    would not nofollow them. Why? They signal spam. Why show google you
    don't trust a link on your site and/or allow spam?

    No reason to allow anyone to comment, add a link, etc. No reason on
    a real content page.

    If you sell links, perhaps you should nofollow them. If google thinks you
    are selling links for PR, they will lower your own PR.

    But google can't tell a paid link from a hole in the ground unless you tell them.

    Google will now not index a site based on a nofollow link. Does not mean they
    won't index the site via another link.

    If people have been reading, they would know that google itself is changing
    the way it deals with nofollow. Keep in mind that each way google deals with it
    is not a positive action. Nofollow signals untrusted spam.

    There is no reason to get a nofollow link. Nofollow is as unnatural as you
    can get. Couple of exceptions: twitter. But it's not really the link, it's the tweet.
    Wikipedia, not the link, but the fact that you got a link as a resource.

    Google must look at those links (and similar) in a different light.

    The only benefit of nofollow links is to generate traffic, rest they are of no worth to your website.
