NoFollow Links

August 27, 2013  |     |     |   0 Comment

“NoFollow” is an HTML tag that tells search engines to not follow certain links on a web page. The instruction can be given regarding a specific link on a web page or for all links on that web page.

For a specific link, the HTML link is included with the tag rel=“nofollow.” For the whole page, the tag is included in the page’s meta as content=“nofollow.” As such, the search engine does not transfer any page rank “juice” or value from the web page to the linked-to page. This is the opposite of DoFollow links.
