It's almost embarrassing to me; but I have no idea how to know what backlinks are DoFollow, and No Follow. Someone please simplify this for me, and tell me how I can know the difference.
I can research things and write fairly well, sometimes I can make a nice, pretty hub; but this internet terminology and mechanics is somewhat beyond me.
Not sure if you know this, but major search engines will not count NoFollow links when calculating PageRank and SERPS (search engine placement). Gaining DoFollow backlinks can, on the otherhand, help to push you up Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.
SEO for firefox is the tool which I use, sits at the bottom of my browser, I can turn it on when I want, and any NoFollow links are outlined in red whilst it is turned on. This is a good indicator.
Ah, I understand now at least what the real issue is. Recently I've been trying to book mark a lot with the AddThis extension for Chrome. Now I see what the difference is, Thanks.
Is the SEO for firefox an add on, or an extension?
Bing and Yahoo search engines ignore the nofollow tag.

its not that old, but could be outdated - but is one of the better resources and actually has direct responses from google/yahoo and ask
bing actually has been proven to be scraping google returns! so on top of whatever algo they have - bing is google sometimes
and google is always lying to you anyway - the algo is secret, anything they "reveal" has a 50/50 chance of being true
Lol, I just quoted that source, shows that everybody goes to result 1 in Google
Yahoo: "If we find a link we make it available to our algorithms to find new content, whether it has a ‘no follow’ attribute or not. However, if the ‘no follow’ attribute is present, it means that no attribution is given to the target from the source of the link."
Bing is entirely inconlusive but the general consensus is that they do precisely the same as Yahoo.
Every time I post something in the forums and don't get temporarily banned. . . . .I learn a ton. Thanks to all of you! :-D
long way: view page source - look at link, see if has "nofollow" added as an attribute
shortway: download firefox or chrome plugin such as seo for firefox - or nodofollow - it will highlight the nofollow links for you (it gets annoying)
best way - dont be overly concerned, variety is natural and human beings cant tell the difference if a link has a nofollow attribute or not
Hey, so for Chrome; are you saying that the plugin is called "nodofollow??"
seo for firefox is the one you should already be using it has a nofollow highlight option in the settings
nodofollow is an alternate option that ONLY highlights links - so yes - its called "nodofollow"
I use seoquake and webdeveloper tools with firefox so I actually could just "inspect element" and see the attribution - that function is default in chrome, try it
Im not sure nodofollow is built for chrome - seoquake is though
Here is some suggestions of firefox plugins you may end up liking: http://hubpages.com/hub/Maximizing-the- … ent-minded most will have chrome counterparts
keep in mind that when you get really complicated, your goal is to be forward thinking and natural in your link building - its not natural to only have dofollow links and many locations with nofollow links have a great human presence who just call a link ..well, a link.
so running around for the next few years only acquiring dofollow links could catch up to you
It can be confusing at first, I just learned from Ryan Kett, I have SEO Quake installed on my browser to show me which sites are DoFollow
Hi Wesman, you can check whether dofollow or nofollow backlink using this firefox add-on (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefo … odofollow/)
why is hp forum so parroty?
Are lots of people using the threaded view and not reading any responses before posting?
use the chrono view...so you actually have a concept of whats been said before ... there is what 4? posts referencing nodofollow extension already.. hell its in bold! .. and the OP is using chrome
My apology, I missed your post.
BTW, there is nodofollow addon for chrome (here: bredsaal.dk/nodofollow-for-google-chrome) , but it's not officially listed at chrome web store.
I really, really wish HP would just default to chronological for new visitors. It might eliminate some confusion and unnecessary posts.
i still can't get used to the threaded view. I will probably always use the chrono just because I like it better But, I think the forums will always be parroty because most of the time people don't read, they just post. I just had someone basically say exactly what I said on a forum thread and we were the only two responses....
