I'm trouble with this same question, because when i have analyze my website competitor i have found something. please see this below..
In Google search engine when i search this keywords in .com "kolkata web design company" "acesoftech.com" see this website backlink all links he is made it from blogger website only. all links are no follow.
Here my question is. how it will come in top position?
or Google will consider no follow links also?
I’ll explain what a no-follow link is. Nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct some search engines that a hyper-link should not influence the link target’s ranking in the search engine’s index. This means that any link with the attribute ref=”nofollow” will not effect a site’s Page Rank or rankings.
You can get backlinks through Nofollow links also. However, there will not be much affect in SERP. Google gives much importance on Dofollow links. Hence, try dofollow links and you will get treasonous result by it.
Howdy ellenwillss...If you are getting a no-follow backlink for your site from an authority or a high value site then no doubt it is a strong point for you. If your website's link is visible on a high quality site then it is beneficial for you and you will get more clicks. In all these are beneficial for traffic generation.
a rel="nofollow" attribute on a link simply means Google *may* crawl the link, and count it as a link etc, but it will not pass anchor text or 'link juice' (page rank). nofollow simply means 'I cannot vouch for the legitimacy or relevance of the target URL'
it is not used for SILO anymore, since it does pass link juice.
Just to clarify, it does not pass link juice - however the recent (as in within the past year or so) change that was made is that nofollow links are now included in the divisor for calculating the proportional link juice on the remaining links on a page. eg - 20 links, 5 of which are nofollow, would mean that each of the remaining 15 links pass 1/20 of the available link juice to the destination (more or less, in a nutshell), not including the various decay factors that are introduced.
