How To Use Nofollow Links For Better SEO Performance

The HTML Attributes values, Dofollow and Nofollow are important tool for Search Engine Optimization. A value used to define whether the search engine should follow or should not follow a link.
In today's post, I tell you how to use the Nofollow HTML attribute for proper SEO. In the tutorial, you will learn about the uses and importance of nofollow tags. You'll also get to know more about the dofollow tags.
 Many of us believe that nofollow tags have little or no impart on SEO. No! The Nofollow tags is just as useful as the Dofollow Tags. The Dofollow link is very useful backlink to improve your website trust score if the link is authorative, likewise, The Nofollow link is kinda useful backlink when we are talking of untrusted website.


What Do We Mean By DoFollow And NoFollow
Dofollow is a special HTML markup that tells the search engine to follow the destination inside a link. The value enable search engine to follow the link. Dofollow value transfers the link juice thereby providing backlinks.

<a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>

 The Nofollow links are very useful when referring to untrusted web pages. You don't have to transfer the link juice to blogs with an irrelevant content. But it is the best option to use the Dofollow links if you want to redirect to blogs with similar content to yours. Nofollow link can also be useful when referring to Affiliate links. You are not sure of their services so nofollow should be used when posting any sponsored or advertising links.
 Nofollow links are introduced mainly for the preventing comment spams.

There are plugins to do this for WordPress users but for Blogspot you should enable comment moderation on your blog.

Link Building - Difference Between Dofollow & Nofollow Links

If we were to talk about search engine optimization, we cannot but come across the term "Linking". It doesn't really matter whether it is on-page or off-page since the "link juice" is flown from a page to another. In today's post, I will be focusing on two important HTML-Attributes for high Quality SEO; Do Follow & No Follow.
Whenever a newbie blogger publishes his first post, the next question would be on how to be at the first page of the search engine. This post is fully enriched with the wealth-driven knowledge of what and how do follow and no follow works.

Nofollow vs Dofollow

Understanding Link Building

Before we dive into the difference between Do Follow links and No Follow links, we must lay a strong foundation regarding backlinks. When a web page receives an inbound link, which is hyperlink pointing to that page, the page get a small SEO boost. Think of a link as a point, and the more links you have, the more points. Search Engines often use the number of points that a website has as one of the most important factors for determining that website's search engine ranking, popularity and importance.

Difference Between Dofollow And Nofollow

Dofollow links instruct the search engine to follow and reach our website. It gives our web page a small SEO boost - backlink. Therefore, accumulation of many backlinks increase your blog or website visibility on the Search Engine Result Page. By default, all links are Dofollow so you don't need any kind of additional keyword to make your link a Dofollow. Example of Dofollow link:
  <a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>

How To Use Nofollow Links For Better SEO Performance

links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link. Don't get confused! You may click on the link and it directed you to a new page but what I'm saying is that it's only visible to humans not to search engine bots. So it’s a good practice to use Nofollow link attribute to those link, where you don’t want to be visible on search engine like affiliate links, advertisement links, sponsored article, irrelevant post. To change the previous HTML link to Nofollow:

<a href="http://www.google.com" rel="nofollow">Google</a>

rel="nofollow" changes the former link from Dofollow (Default) to Nofollow.

5 Acts Of Self-Discipline - Become A Successful Blogger

According to Nathaniel Branden, Self-discipline is the ability to organise our behaviour over time in the service of specific tasks - It requires the ability to defer gratification in the service of a remote goal. This is the ability to think, plan and live long-range. Self-displine is the ability to make yourself do the things you know you ought to do, without someone making you do them.
To Blogger, Self-displine is the ability to do your dailies without any pulling forces: write your blog posts with enthusiasm, make time to socialize your posts, contact top blogger at your niche e.t.c. The truth is I don't possess the complete mastery of self-displine but I still have few or little embedded understanding of self-displine.
 Yeah! Any successful blogger you might have known must surely possess afew or complete understanding of self-discipline. To be successful like they do you must be familiarized with pillars of self-displine in relations to blogging. They are:
  • Accept Blogging As Your Responsibility
  • Total Commitment
  • Read More Than You Write
  • Have A "Done" & "To-Do" List
  • Avoid Procastination

#1. Accept Blogging As Your Responsibility

Self-discipline starts when you believe that you're responsible for both the failure and success of your blog. Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility. The only common quality that all successful people have is the ability to take on responsibility. So you should integrate the mentality that accepting the responsibility of what you do makes you a successful worker.

#2. Total Commitment

Total commitment means going beyond the limitation of demotivated spirit. Atimes, you feel down, you felt like being control by an external force telling you to go off the hedge, but you know what? Commitment will give you control over it. David McNally defines Commitment as the enemy of resistance. It is the serious promise to press on, to get up, no matter how many times you are knocked down.

#3. Read More Than You Write

Knowledge is wealth. A successful blogger aims at accumulating knowledge from different sources to increase their wealth. You should focus more on reading blog posts from other bloggers than writing. Reading from other blogs enable you to integrate and differentiate various writing styles and pattern.

#4. Have A "Done" & "To-Do" List.

Your time is all you have to exchange for your success. If you cannot plan your time, you would definitely waste it. Then don't start anything unless you've planned properly, you'll always achieve what you plan for. You should have a To-Do list on your Computer, Phone, Diary, Note, Jotter e.t.c. Then forward the ones you've done to the "done" list. Using this act enables you to meet deadlines.

#5. Avoid Procastination

Procastination is a thief of time. There is nothing more harmful to the service, than the neglect of discipline. Why procastinating? Why not do the to-do? This have no good for your blog but it will rather cause it more loss of traffic, popularity and income. All you have to do is to never put till tommorrow on the book you can do today.

If we don't discipline ourselves, the world will do it for us
