    No follow link?

    Hi Forum members,

    Google Master Matt Cutts says, Dont use Nofollow backlinks. but some experts says, Nofollow backlinks can increase site traffic.

    What concept should i follow?


    Can anyone clear my doubt.

    Nofollow backlinks are fine and it's more natural to have a percentage of your bcklinks that are Nofollow.

    However, you shouldn't use the Nofollow tag to sculpt Pagerank.

    bogart is correct. Matt Cutts says that you should not use nofollow on internal links to sculpt PageRank.

    All outbound advertising links on your site should be nofollow.

    Any outbound link to a site that may be penalized should be nofollow.

    You should not be penalized by nofollow links to your site. They will not pass inheritnace factors, but they may still drive traffic.

    It will be better if your website use no follow and do follow links this will make your site look natural to the search engine unlike using do follow links only for the site just to manipulate search engine rankings.

    Forget the whole no follow and do follow link crap.
    Just put the link on your site and be done with it.

    My blogs have links and all links are do follow.
    And google has never penalized me, got mad at me, or shown up at my door demanding I make those links no follow.

    ROTFLMAO

    Give them a chance they just might hire someone to do that.

    They are turning into the Nazi's of the internet.

    What do you mean by, "turning into"? They have already destroyed billions of dollars of value on the web and are probably #2 behind Obama when it comes to stifling the economy.

    I hear that the official Google uniform for new recruits includes jack boots and the chances that you will get hired in an interview increase if you goose-step into the room.

    There is no ratio like you have to maintain do follow and no follow , its better to submit your site in high quality website that's all matters...

    For me, it is all about relevancy, no matter if it is nofollow or dofollow..
    For example, what if it is a

    DoFollow Link BUT Not Relevant Site
    NoFollow Link BUT Relevant Site

    I think it just perfectly make sense for google to give a point more on the nofollow link, right??

    ANyone who goes around submitting their site to other sites?
    What a waste of time and money!

    Only links that matter today, and it could change tomorrow, are links that other webmasters put on their sites because they like your site!
