    I know that do-follow links are better for getting my website ranked higher in Google. However, my question is for external links - from my blog.

    I write a blog and I include links to websites with high DA (above 70). I am doing this to show Google first of all that my content is related to this industry from the links, but also to establish high authority for my website.

    So, should I use no follow or followed links? I heard that if I have lots of external links, the effect could be opposite.

    It is true that do follow links are appreciated by the search engines but now no follow links are also considered as a good signal from your website and possible source of quality traffic from the target audience.

    Do Follow Links give you backlinks which is counted by search engine but no follow gives you only traffic but not count by google for ranking factor. But you should build both backlinks

    I would say you should give no follow link to all the external websites or pages as this clearly mean that your content is related to the websites abut you are not giving any weightage to the link. Do follow mean your are passing the authority of your website and referring it with complete trust.

    About 80% dofollow and 20% nofollow links are better and will increase site ranking.

    Where did you get these stats? How does 20% no follow increase ranking?

    Without nofollow backlinks, search engines will consider your site's backlinks are paid. That figure can be maximum.

    That makes no sense at all. I agree Google likes to see a mix but no-follow links will not increase your ranking. And to suggest Google considers links to be paid for unless you have some no-follow links is about as wrong as it gets.

    According to google recent algorithm dofollow links are counted as ranking measure for any website and nofollow links do not affect for ranking signal. But both are needed to be trusted to google. If you have only dofollow links that is suspicious to google.
    To make your site's link juice rich and hearlty to google profile you should consider 70% dofollow links and 30% nofollow links.

    I agreed with @daljeet-arora.59166

    Dofollow Links give backlinks & but no follow gives only traffic so why to go with nofollow, You should only add Dofollow Links for external links.

    Nofollow and Dofollow Links are very important in SEO of any Website. Link Building is a very important strategy in SEO. For proper SEO of your website, you should know when and where to use Nofollow and Dofollow links. The wrong usage of Nofollow and Dofollow links highly impact your website’s ranking in search engines. That's why it is very important to know when and where to use no-follow and do-follow links in your website. So last define as Do Follow Links give you backlinks which are counted by search engine but no follow gives you only traffic but not count by Google for ranking factor.

    Do follow links make a strong website bases but no follow links are also important. unless all your links to be considered as paid and you may be penalised for that.

    As you can see, this claim has been addressed previously and has been debunked. Where did you get the idea that having all do-follow links would mean Google would consider them paid links? it makes no sense, but knowing the reasoning behind it, and the source, would help us determine how the conclusion was reached, and we can better explain why it is wrong.

    I think do-follow links is always better than no-follow links, But It is not easy to get do-follow links always.
