    Correlation versus causation.

    Google doesn't care what the ratio is. And even if they did, you would never accurately know what the "proper" ratio is. No link checking database on the planet finds all of the links out there. Most only find a small fraction of them.

    You can find lots of high ranking sites in very competitive SERPs that appear to have less than 5% of their links tagged nofollow.

    Several years ago Matt Cutts stated that out of all the links crawled by Google only about 2% of them were tagged nofollow. The only thing that has changed since then is Google scaring more people into adding nofollow tags to links on their sites.

    Nofollow backlinks are useful when then are from relevant and high-quality websites.

    Both nofollow and dofollow links are important. But the percentage of dofollow backlinks must be greater than nofollow.

    They are good. For ordinary marketing, and for SEO especially. Google still count them, even if they are no-follow. It draws attention and rice authority of your resource.

    They are useful & put a great impact on rankings as well, I have tested it & can assure you, they are still relevant to google when it comes to ranking a website page.

    Nofollow backlinks are useful in the sense that they can drive potential traffic to your website.

    No follow backlinks are not useless when if you have high authority backlinks or high DA PA. These type of links rank your site on Google Search engine.

    After a year of believing that nofollow links do literally nothing, I have discovered various cases that really appear to be in opposition to that to logic.
    Each time I see what appears to be nofollow links helping a positioning, there are almost often three things going on.
    #1 It's an extremely low challenge keyword.
    #2 The nofollow interface is a reference. It's not simply irregular spam or comments on a blog post.
    #3 The page the nofollow link is on, has authority, and it is anything but a stranded page like generally profiles.
    I've have seen a lot of proof that nofollow links appear help new substance get indexed rapidly and occasionally ranked on very low competition keyword. Now and again it just takes 10 to 15 minutes. To do this, the nofollow link should a too popular site.

    You are wrong. It's other factors that rank the target site.

    One of which is your browsing history. Google remembers and will promote sites you have previously visited.

    However, show us one of these no follow links you suggest was responsible for improving the rank of a site and I may change my mind.

    If you create a high-quality backlink, Then it is doesn't matter No-Follow or Do-Follow Backlink.

    Your post makes no sense. You need to read the Google documentation. Even mentioning ‘high quality backlink’ is pointless without context.

    Dropping the links in the forums just because it's dofollow never worked after 2016 updates. I don't know why some people keep persisting on that. The way google takes into consideration the backlinks, they focus more on the people staying on your website or clicking on URL more than link value being dofollow or nofollow.
