How are dofollow and nofollow used?
Dofollow links will carry trust and a vote of confidence from one site to another. Google views these as a signal of authority, especially from relevant sites. All links are Dofollow unless the website has changed them to Nofollow. Nofollow links are set to avoid passing on this vote of confidence and are usually sent from websites that link to a lot of websites of varying nature.
