Dofollow link passes link juice and they definitely help you much, in order to achieve good page rank. As it instructs search engine spiders to follow this link.
Nofollow means Google bot won’t crawl the link and won’t pass any link juice.

Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website and nofollow links will not follow

Do-follow links and No-follow links both are equally important. But still having do-follow links in good quality is good for us as they help our site to get better page rank as well as better visibility in terms of SERP results. No-follow links will not allow to share their link juice.

Why there will appear 'no-follow'? Should I avoid it?

Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link.That means if the website owner is linking back to you with nofollow attributes, it does not pass on link juice. Only Humans will be able to follow the links. Though some time back Google made it clear that they don’t consider nofollow link attributes but weightage of such links are really less. Even though, it’s a good practice to use Nofollow link attribute to those link, where you don’t want to pass link-juice.

Example of Nofollow Link:

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

How to add Nofollow tag to a link

Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink. If a webmaster is linking back to you with this link both Search Engine and Humans will be able to follow you. The best way to give someone dofollow love is allowing keyword in the anchor text. This means when you are linking to any website or page, use the targeted keyword as anchor text.

Example of Dofollow Link:

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

Note: By default all the hyperlinks are dofollow. So, you don’t need to do anything to make a link do-follow.

Important Notice:-

Recently Google have said that they will still count the nofollow link as an outgoing link in terms of the distribution of page rank from your page. Though again it also depends on where that nofollow link is places. Placing a nofollow link at the bottom of the page has least impact, and when placed at the top of the page, it carries some impact.

Types Of No-Follow

Robots Meta Tag : <meta name=”robots” content=”nofollow” />

This tells bots/crawlers/spiders not to follow links on the full page.

Link Attribute : <a href=”http://www.google.com” rel=”nofollow”>

This tells search engines not to count the link in terms of ranking pages.

Quick Tip: Try to keep noindex attribute for pages like contact and nofollow attribute for affiliate links on your blog posts. If you are linking to any spam website for any reason, use the nofollow link attribute.

DoFollow: The link passes the Link juice which is useful to increase website page rank and increase the keyword ranking in search engine.

NoFollow: The link just increasing taffic but not helpful to increase website page rank or search rankings.
