    Do Follow Links are those links consider by Google in search engine ranking purpose while No follow are those links not consider by Google.But I advice to make both Do follow & No follow back links for your website.

    Well basically dofollow links get indexed in search engines and nofollow links do not. These are the links that the search engine robots will ignore.

    I think in the seo process both no follow and do follow links matter
    do follow count as back link to the site from search engine. It's important for site ranking to get quality back links.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.

    A Do-follow link is a link that does count as a point in the page’s favor, boost PageRank, and help a page’s placement in the SERPs. Do follow links get indexes search engine.

    A No-follow link is a link that doesn't pass link juice and doesn't allow Google bot to follow the link by adding an HTML Tag.

    Do-Follow links Is like a meal for your website As its Work As agent to increase your popularity And Get your PR Juice From that Partners Site. On the other - hand, no-Follow Links Are those Who Only Increase Your Presence In that partner Site But You Will Does Not get Any PR Juice From it According to Google..

    No-follow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link and Do-follow links allow Google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website

    Do follow links are very best for a website. if you create do follow link of your website when a spider crawl your link its get all juice (PR, alexa, link) of the website where you post your link. No follow link are not good because Google crawler not give importance of a no follow link.

    Do-Follow link which crawled by Google and passes link juice and No follow links which also Google crawl for only information doesn't pass value.

    Do-follow and No-follow are link attribute, that used by Webmasters for search engine spider will allow or not the page value to another. A Do-follow link is link that counted as a page in the link's favor and helps page rank value. If Hyperlinks were No-follow attribute that does not count as a page in the links favor. Also does not boos page rank.

    Do-follow mean ones we get a back links from other sites as well as getting some link Juice that means getting point from other site. No-follow Google consider as a back link only but did not any value points..

    Do follow links is the most powerful way to influence search engines to redirect a lot of traffic to your site. Search engine crawlers crawl the whole content on your webpage including images, links, keywords etc.

    No follow links can be relevant to your post’s context and can come from the sources which have a potential to generate high referral traffic.

    Do Follow attribute tells search engines to follow the links included in a web page and No Follow tells search engines not to follow those links.

    Some people think there is a "dofollow" value but this is simply not true. A do-follow link is simply a link that has not been given the "nofollow" rel value. Do-follow is the default, No-follow requires you to specifically specify the "nofollow" value.

    Dofollow Link is a hyperlink that is able to tell all search engines to pass along it’s page rank influence to an outbound link. If you will use or get do follow links then search engines will count your link in the eyes of Google, yahoo, Bing etc as backlink for your site and you can get some positive value for your site ranking.

    Nofollow is html tag that website owners, add to links in their website for the search engines not to crawl, notice, or acknowledge a link.
