In blogging, you have to add many links to your post. But if we add a link to any such site by mistake, then your content is not related or we will add a link to any site*y videos site or the hacking site or if we link to these sites through comments, then google Adds your site to the spam list.

So to avoid this, we should be aware of both Nofollow and Dofollow.

Now you must have understood that what is the importance of no-follow and do-follow links, so let us now know what is no-follow and do-follow links?

What is Nofollow Links

These are the links that search engine bots do not index. And only your readers can follow these links. That is, when we add a link to a site that is not related to our content, we can call it No Follow Links.

So now you understand what is nofollow and dofollow links? So let us now know how to use these links.

But this also does not mean that you make every link nofollow.

Because if you use nofollow to your every link, then the search engine cannot read or index your links.

2. Related Content Site Par: You make do-follow links to the related site links of your site. That is the topic on which you share the article. Same site if you want to add links to your site then you should use dofollow it.

3. High Ranking Websites: Sites that have a good ranking on the internet, if you add a link to such a site on your site, you can follow them like, Google, Yahoo. Facebook etc.

4. Original Content Sharing Sites: If you want to add a link to such a site and they share the original content on the site, then you can keep the links of that site as default.

This was some such place where you can use Dofollow links. And on other sites like Unrelated sites, Affiliate links, Bad sites, and comments sections, you should use nofollow. And you should never add the links of those spam sites to your blog.
