    • Nofollow Links
    Nofollow Links are the links which don’t allow search engines bots to index the links. It means search engines bots can’t index your links if they find no follow tags with your links. Only humans can follow the links. Nofollow Links are used to hiding the website link from the search engines.
    • Dofollow Links
    Dofollow links are the links which allow search engines bots to index the links. It means, search engine bots can index the links if they find Dofollow tags with your links. Both humans and search engines bots can follow the links. You can use do follow links to provide backlinks to the high authority site that provides High Quality and unique content in the same niche or your targeted keywords.

    Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link.That means if the website owner is linking back to you with nofollow attributes, it does not pass on link juice. ... Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink.

    Dofollow backlinks help the most with page rank influence. It is a hyperlink that allows the link to use its page rank and gives your website more "link juice" as I like to call it.

    Nofollow backlinks are practically the opposite. It is still a hyperlink, but it does not pass on any page rank status. However, it is still good for seo in the sense that it might bring in referral traffic.
