    Nofollow Importance

    Dear Experts,
    As we know Wikipedia is a nofollow but backlink from wikipedia is like a thumb up from president for Google...
    Very Little amount of wiki backlinks can rank a site..
    What about importance of nofollow?

    If next update of google will be a good for nofollow backlinks what you say???..

    Yes Wiki Backlinks are really important and so as the nofollow tag as if a domain is having all dofollow backlinks than google bots thinks of this domain or website to be a spam as everybody who is giving links are not always dofollow so it hits google bot as a danger

    You can say in some ways no-follow links are useful for websites.

    What you have to remember is that you need a mix of dofollow and nofollow. This is because you have to make it look as natural as possible for Google, and if you were to have other sites link to you naturally it would be a mix of both. So stop only searching for dofollows and make your backlink profile look like the links have come in naturally, rather than purely built by you for manipulating your search engine rankings. If you have all dofollows that is an obvious spam flag.

    Both Dofollow and Nofollow links have their importance in SEO.
    Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow the link. That means if the website owner is linking back to you with Nofollow attributes, it does not pass on link juice. Only Humans will be able to follow the links. And Dofollow links allow Google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink.

    Thanks

    Whether it's follow or nofollow, you have to look at links like salt on top of a steak. You just want enough to make the food taste good and over do it will ruin the food. Even though you getting nofollow link but if the nofollow link link if from authority websites (eg, Wiki), then it's still consider very powerful as attribution. Always look for releated link and links from authoritative sites in my opinion.

    Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link. Moreover google has announced that nofollow links would also be considered but with less impact.
    Nofollow link position also matters.top of the page or bottom.

    I don't think nofollow links will impact your seo. But they can sometimes be good for traffic though.
