Default Can you differentiate between ‘nofollow’ and ‘dofollow’ link?

Nofollow links are not passed by search engines bot and therefore cannot be cached or indexed. Dofollow link is a kind of hyperlink and it passes through all search engines and it puts an impact over page rank.

If this links is “do follow” then search engines will follows the link and so link juice gets passed. If this links is “do follow” then search engines will follows the link and so link juice gets passed.

When Google bots are crawling a website they look for external links point to other websites. If this links is “do follow” then search engines will follows the link and so link juice gets passed.
If a search engine finds a “no follow” backlink it will just ignore the link and will not get deeper into crawling and no link juice is passed.

Do follow and no follow are link attributes and contain instructions for search engine robots. Do follow links are crawled and indexed in search engines whereas no follow links are never crawled and indexed in search engines.

Open the page, right click and check view page source. I'm not a tech savvy. That's the only thing I can think off. Or, are there any online checkers out there?

But anyway, it is wise to balance your backlinks with dofollow and nofollow links. Don't be too obvious with Google, that is.
