DoFollow to NoFollow Link Converter


Everyone knows SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a process of getting Organic traffic for your blog. But, before learning SEO, you need to learn about some key terms related to SEO. The main terms are ‘Do-Follow’ and ‘No-Follow’.

So, what is the meaning of these terms?

Don’t worry, I will be explaining these terms in detail in the following guide!

What is a DoFollow link?

A Do-Follow Link is an HTML attribute of the link tag that specifies Search Engine Bot to count the link as an inbound link.

The number of Do-Follow links to your page is a primary contributor to the Search Engine Result Page (SERP). Below is an example of HTML code of a do-follow link

<a href=“https://hackerztrickz.com/”>HackerzTrickz</a>

One of the most important things to remember is that in the case of Do-follow links, the Quality matters over quantity. An inbound link from Times Of India is much important than 50 links from small and unpopular blogs.

What is a NoFollow link?

Initially, when the search engine like Google started using inbound links in its algorithm for SERP (Search Engine Results Page). Many so-called bloggers started spamming their links in other blog’s comments to get follow links. Even, people started posting links in the reference section of Wikipedia. These black-hat practices start affecting Google’s search results.

In the year 2005, Google’s Matt Cutts and Jason Shellen resolved this issue by introducing the ‘No-Follow’ attribute.

The No-Follow attribute commands the search engine bot not to count the link as an inbound link.

HTML Syntax for No-Follow links

<a href=”http://www.website.com/” rel=”nofollow”>Your Text</a>

Now, Google counts the comment section’s link under the No-Follow attribute. Even, Wikipedia marks all the reference article links under the ‘No-Follow’ attribute. Generally, all the paid links are marked under the No-Follow attribute.

Difference between DoFollow and NoFollow:
