Do follow: A best way of Link Building

Till now we have learnt different types of Submission Process, Optimization tactics, How to monetize the Traffic, Keyword research and many more. Now we are going to learn how to achieve an effective result by making best use of all these tactics. First of all we have to take a decision regarding selection of a web browser which can prove helpful for undertaking various SEO process. Hope Mozilla fire fox is one of the best available web browsers which provide all the necessary plug-in to undertake the process as an ease. Today I am going to talk about one such plug-in which will prove helpful to bifurcate between do follow link and No do follow link. Hope many of them will be already well-known with such attribute but some might be there who have just entered the field and are unknown about it then for them I will explain it in details what is meant by Do follow link and No do follow link and how they plays an important role in optimization process.

When you have a link on a certain page (an inbound link or a link that points to your own site) that is designed to accommodate do follow links (i.e. no do follow attribute has been dis activated), that page contributes for your site reputation in the eyes of search engines. In other words, you will benefit also when search engines find your page linked to other site which is considered to be reputable. That page gives value to your page through the do follow link you have. In nullshet do follow link passes the link juice while no do follow doesn't passes any such link juice. So, now the question arise how to determine whether a link is a do follow or no do follow?

To tell the spiders to crawl a link, you don’t have to do anything. Simply using the normal format of href can do, the search engine spiders will crawl the link provided. To tell the spiders to NOT crawl a link, you need to add the following code to the HTML code above:

It would then look like:

Search Engine Optimization

Basically, there is no true “do follow”, it is just NOT using the “nofollow” tag. Too simple

To determine do follow links is quite simple. All you need to know is to scan through the source code of the page you are trying to check (right click on the page and then go to 'page source') alternatively, you can also find the source code on the 'view' menu. If you find 'no follow' as mentioned above then, it's obvious that page is programmed to have 'no follow' links. That means, that page does not contribute for your site reputation whenever a certain reader of that page clicks the link pointing to your site. Now, you might be asking now if there is other way to check it because it is quite time consuming to check if the page has multiple links. Yes there is. The idea I discussed above is ideally applicable on pages having just a number of links. But, if you are to check multiple links (let us say, what if the page has 50 links and you need to check all of them?). There is a better way to check multiple links (quick and easy) and that is by using the Fire fox 'No Do Follow' plug-in. So, check your Fire fox browser if the plug-in is already installed. If not, you can download it from here

All you need to do during checking using this tool is to go to the page you want to check, right-click on it and enable the 'No Do Follow' option. When done, links on pages are highlighted by two possible color which determine whether the links are do follow or not (highlighted in blue are do follow links; no follow, otherwise). As every one of us know that Our big brother Google considers inbound link as one of the factor to determine page rank and it is clear from these discussion that only do follow link will contribute to pass some link juice So instead of concentrating on each types of link Concentrating on do follow link can benefit you in terms of Good Page rank.
