Q: Why we should make links ‘no follow’?




 To sustain a proper Link Juice for your field we should use ‘no follow’ links. Google doesn’t go by link Juice to linked domain in box of ‘no follow’ link.


Question :



What should be the ratio between ‘do follow and nofollow’ links?


Answer :

 SEO and Webmaster’s put forward that we should not worry about the relation of these two. We should be ordinary while making a link ‘do follow’ or ‘no follow’. If you try to maneuver it then you will always worry about ratio and Google penalty.



  If we have duplicate link on same page then how Google treat them?


Answer :

 Google don’t consider second copy links. If a page have many copy of same link then it just consider the first link.


Question :

 If I have 10 back links on my page and 5 of them are ‘do follow’ and 5 of them are ‘no follow’ then how the Link Juice distribute among them.


Answer :


Logic before the ‘do follow / no follow’ concept


If you have 10 back links then each will get 10% of page link Juice


Logic after the ‘do follow / no follow’


Total links are 10 so each must get 10% but 5 of them are ‘no follow’ so 50% Link Juice will just vanish.



So all back link out of 5 ‘do follow’ link will get 10% of link Juice.


Question :

If I have two duplicate links on my page and one of them is ‘no follow’ and another one is ‘do folllow’ then how Google treat them?



As per debate in various forums, Google believe the first Link only in case of photocopy links, so it will believe the rel characteristic value of first link; if it ‘do follow’ then your link will be deem as ‘do follow’ otherwise not.
