    Yes No follow links are helpfull for website to get traffic only they not provide any link juice to your web page. According to Google your link ratio of dofollow and nofollow is 2:3. And for High quality nofollow links are best every time.

    you read it right that no follow links don't pass the link juice but that doesn't mean that google will not count them, Google webmaster counts nofollow links and they are important because they counts as backlinks, your domain must have dofollow links as well as nofollow links, links from high page rank as well as links from low page rank domains, if you have only dofollow links referring to your domain then this will count as non-genuine links.

    Links do not have to be no-follow to be high-quality. There are ways to get high-quality links that are do-follow, if they come from high-quality websites. Having too many no-follow links makes Google wonder why, and could harm your ranking. As prakash mentioned, Google will count links no matter where they come from. However, there must be a logical reason why you make a link no-follow, rather than just making it no-follow because you don't want Google to know where it goes.

    Yes, Nofollow links don't pass link juice because google don't index nofollow links means do not pass any search engine ranking value for the search engine like google& bing.

    Simple, nofollow links are only helpful for increasing website traffic.

    Can't say no follow links are useless, such links if targeted wisely, can bring good traffic to your site. Also, getting only dofollow backlinks can raise alarm to Google for suspicious link building activities. Hence, to avoid getting link building penalties, do consider taking no follow links for your site.

    I don't think that nofollow doesn't keep importance for SEO. You might have seen that which ever tools you would use for extracting the backlinks there is a list of nofollow ones. So in order to visualize in a general perspective, both dofollow and nofollow links are of use. It may be true that a nofollow link would not pass any link juice but as a whole that makes the base strong enough to get a hype in SERP.

    Thank you very much for this post, and for all the responses.
    I've had this same question -- another forum has been giving me nofollow links.

    FYI - Business Advice Forum links are all dofollow.

    Yes you are right no follow links are not useful to improve ranking but it can help to improve traffic. many websute they gives no follow link but also help to send traffic to website. In case of organic and genuine link building you need to be make ration 60:40 as do follow and no follow links so looks like genuine.

    Agree with Parkash and Joeroxx, that you should know the logical reason of using nofollow link within your website. Mostly, nofollow links are used when you are using the same link again and again within the content but at the same time, you do not want to harm your website from any Google penalty. Moreover, it depends upon your knowledge and the type fp place where you are sharing url whether to keep it dofollow or nofollow.

    Yes they do but you have balanced in proportion of nofollow and dofollow means dofollow link to be more than nofollow otherwise your SERP will affect in Google result.
