It is HTML tag you create on link which you want to give permission to search engine that it read these links it call do-follow tag and if you want that search engine should not read anything you make it no-follow.

If the link is do follow, then the search engine will crawl it,if it is nofollow, then the search engine will not crawl that link. Its as simple as that.

If you want to increase page rank of your website then nofollow links can't help you, but nofollow links helps in building search engine ranking but Google wants quality links, its better to add your links in dofollow websites

DoFollow refers to links that do not have nofollow attribute. It is recognized as a plus point for back-linking and the link will be crawled by the search engine spiders. If the link is dofollow, the page rank of the webpage can be transferred into your site.

No follow simply means that the webmaster does not want to have anything to do with the link. But there are occasions that we need NoFollow links as well. Nofollow links are not always ignore. There are several benefits by having no follow links as well. Having a mixture of nofollow and dofollow backlinks pointing to your site would make your link profile look more natural.

So if, for instance, I comment on a dofollow blog, what does it mean that the search engine will crawl it? Will it show up if people do a search using the words in my comment?

Do-follow links are readable by bot and it's passes the link juice value. Do-follow links are good for Human Traffic and SEO Traffic.

No-follow links are not readable by bot. No-follow links are only good for Human Traffic which is still the best traffic you can have. There are may sites having No-follow tag, but those No-follow links can still send you traffic because we humans are not governed by the No-follow and Do-follow Markup as the Search Engines are.

What is dofollow?

Simply put, “dofollow” is a plain HTML link that indicates to users that text is hyperlinked. It also tells search-engine spiders to crawl your link.

If you’re familiar with basic HTML, “dofollow” links should be very familiar:

<a href="http://example.com">Your Anchor Text</a>

The term “dofollow” is used to describe a type of link in conversations like we’re having today. You will notice there isn’t an actual “dofollow” link relationship attribute, which is an HTML tag that tells the web browser the relationship of the linked document with the current document.

What is nofollow?

The link relationship attribute “nofollow” looks like this:

<a href="http://www.example.com" rel="nofollow">Your Anchor Text</a>

Still visible and clickable to users, what “nofollow” does is tell search-engine spiders to not follow your link, resulting in the following:

Spiders will not follow the link
Users may still click and follow the link
PageRank is not transferred
Anchor text is not transferred to your link profile
Okay, I know you might be thinking, “Wait?! Isn’t that counterproductive if what I’m trying to do is build exposure for myself in search engines?”

The link relationship attribute “nofollow” is one of many methods search engines have initiated to prevent link spam from reaching end users. With strategically used “nofollow” tags, you will build your exposure and protect your authority with search engines.
