This article is meant to help those who are new into Search Engine Optimization.

Many people ask what the difference is between do-follow sites and no-follow sites and what does this really means after all!

To begin with these are two kinds of sites and they will influence your own links in a different way when placed on them.

When you place your link on a dofollow site the html link code will be a regular anchor text html link.

In the case of a no-follow the no follow html tag will be added within the link and you will not get a link back to your site from this site.

If you link your site to a dofollow site the search engines will acknowledge your link and you will get what is called a backlink to your site.

If you link your site to a nofollow site the search engines will not acknowledge the link as a backlink to your site.

For example, this is a normal dofollow link:

<a href="http://www.jeekers.info">Jeekers</a>

this is a nofollow link:

<a href="http://www.jeekers.info" rel="nofollow">Jeekers</a>

What is the use of DoFollow sites?

If you want to build backlinks to your site and get a higher PageRank you need to make sure that you are linking to dofollow sites, which includes most high ranking sites with a high PageRank and high authority.

If a "do follow" designation is made, Google will look at the link as a backlink to your targeted page.

If a "no follow" designation is made, Google will not use it as a backlink to your target.

There are Do-follow and No-follow article directories, blogs, and social networking sites. Just by doing a simple Google search you can find out what there are.

Sometimes, No-follow sites are still valuable for traffic to your target, despite the fact that Google may not count it as a backlink, and there are some that argue that a no follow will still give you a little backlink juice.
