really simple:

When ever you get a link to your site or place a link to your site, you have the option of making it either a dofollow or a nofollow link (via html).

Dofollow will be counted by google and give you credit in their eyes and will therefore help you rankings.

Nofollow will be dropped out of the google link graph and wont count towards your rankings on google.

Google is more and more taking into account quality of link sources and less dofollow/nofollow.

Nofollow will give you traffics but, Search engines will not consider it as a back link.

But if you will get links from dofollow sites, then Search engines will count it as backlink for your site and you can get some positive value for your site ranking.

When ever you get a link to your site or place a link to your site, you are able to do either dofollow or nofollow a link (via HTML).

Dofollow will be counted by Google and you give credit to them, and thus will help you with rankings.

Nofollow will be abandoned and the graph link google custom into account in your ranking on Google.

Dofollow and nofollow are the important terms in the field of blogging. If you are a blogger you know the concept of commenting on Dofollow blogs to get link juice from that blog.

Theory behind dofollow and nofollow is only search engine caching. Whenever you work on dofollow forum or blog generated backlinks much fast cache on search engine as compare to nofollow. It's automatically create high priority on website search engine results.

Ask.com doesn't consider dofollow and nofollow in links. Only google, bing, yahoo sees the dofollow and nofollow.

I am providing freebacklinks, by the way. If you need, send me pm.

There is major difference between Do follow & No Follow link. I mentioned it below of what i know.

DoFollow links are the ones which passes the PageRank juice. Links which are attached with dofollow attribute are considered by the Google Search Engine and helps you to gain better ranking for your site.

Links with nofollow attribute are called NoFollow Links. These types of links do not pass any page rank juice and are ignored by the Google Search Engine. It is mostly used for the guest links on your site, such as links in the comments.

Hey,

The name itself says the meaning, a dofollow site is which follows your link back to you while a nofollow is just opposite of it. In order to understand it in better way I too would suggest you to check about in Wikipedia.

Dofollow links are the links which helps in getting link juices and improves the ranking of a website in search engine. Nofollow links are only useful in getting traffic to a website.

Which link contain attribute like rel="nofollow" so this is nofollow links. And others are dofollow links. Nofollow and dofollow both kind of links are helpful for getting traffic to website. But only the difference is that nofollow links will not consider for assigning weightage of the page from which we got link.
