Another link to wikipedia ...
A no follow link is simply a link that doesn't pass page rank. If you highlight a link and view source in fire fox if it has rel=nofollow in it it won't pass page rank but it still helps in SeRpS.
Awesome explanation. Thanks GamingOn. Very helpful indeed.
Thanks for the definition. Wikipedia is not always accurate.
I've written a post about nofollow links and the affect on SEO - http://www.davecain.co.uk/blog/nofollow-links-seo
link which will not help targeted website in rankings. Such links are present in many social media sites, prohibiting posters to boost their website rankings by simply pasting links to their websites.
Nofollow is a value that can be assigned to the attribute of an HTML an element to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index. It is intended to reduce the effectiveness of certain types of search engine spam, thereby improving the quality of search engine results and preventing spamdexing from occurring
No follow Link mean - Important Search Engine(Google, Yahoo, Bing.........and so on) does not give the weighted.
nofollow links have no use for your website in seo.but they can get traffic for you.
Hello friends.. i have same opinion about this topic for "nofollow link"
A no follow link is a link that is included on a webpage using standard html markup but includes an attribute to prevent passing link juice or reputation to the destination page. This type of link does not improve the link target search engine ranking. Here is a hyperlink to Google followed by the same link with the no follow attribute added.
<a href="http://www.google.com/" rel="no follow">Google</a>
I hope u understand to this details..
No follow Links Are not helping to increase Rank in Search Engines. It helps you to generate traffic on website. But increase in the number of no follow backlinks can harm your Ranking.
Some ways you would use no follow links would be if you have a post or page that contains a lot of links going out. You would add a no follow, it helps in your SEO on that page, You can also add a no index and no follow to a linking page on your site, say for instance you are sharing links with people, you can do this so that Google does not index or follow the links on that page. You would do this in the way of directory submission. If you are needing citations so that you can get listed in the 7box, then you might look at this option, because directories usually like three way links, which is old school, but some people still use them...
There are a lot of other things you would use them for on your site. We use them on certain pages when we work with onsite optimization of peoples sites. And you want to be mindful of what those pages are so that you dont spend time with internal linking on your site to those pages.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/nofollow is a death link.
"Nofollow" provides a way for webmasters to tell search engines "Don't follow links on this page" or "Don't follow this specific link."
Originally, the nofollow attribute appeared in the page-level meta tag, and instructed search engines not to follow (i.e., crawl) any outgoing links on the page. For example:
<meta name="robots" content="nofollow" />
nofollow is a value that can be assigned to the rel attribute of an HTML a element to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index. It is intended to reduce the effectiveness of certain types of internet advertising because their search algorithm depends heavily on the amount of links to a website when determining which websites should be listed in what order in their search results for any given term.
No follow links are those links which google crawler not crawl ur link or pages but no follow links benefits are mostly they gain traffic.
no follow doesn't count as back link to the site from search engine but it can be helpful as an traffic generate source if it's come from high pr sites.The idea behind a nofollow link is that a search engine will not click through a link flagged as such. A nofollow link can be good or bad depending on the context of how it is utilized.
