There is nothing known as Do-follow, while no-follow is an attribute that is set for a particular link that indicates the search engine bots not to follow the link. All the links are by default what you call it as do-follow unless the webmaster actually sets a no-follow attribute to it.

Nofollow tag links are not taken into account by search engines and provide no backlink, however, it doesn't sounds those links are worthless. You can receive a good targeted traffic from those links.

Dofollow and Nofollow both are the main factors in the SEO work strategy. The definition of Nofollow link is Nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target’s ranking in the search engine’s index. Dofollow attribute means, which are really only “follow” links from websites tell the bots to follow the link and in return you get “link juice” from those websites.

Dofollow and nofollow both followed by Google but Dofollow link more useful than Nofollow link, I would also see that Google cache nofollow link fast than Dofollow.

Hy...
No follow is an attribute value of a link, which tells search engines that the link should not affect the target-link’s ranking in the search engine’s index and should not crawl towards the target link.

Dofollow is completely opposite of No follow. To make a link Dofollow, you don’t have to use particular Dofollow attribute in the links.

No follow are those link which are not indexed by Google and Do follow are those link which are followed and indexed by Google. Do follow link is useful for getting back link.

dofollow are links and sites that are followed by search engines while nofollow are websites which are not followed by search engine.

Dofollow Blog:

A dofollow blog allows search engine spiders to crawl the site and follow the link. If you comment on a dofollow blog, a backlink will be created so search engine spiders will crawl your link back to your site & it brings SEO benefits for your site.
Nofollow Blog:

Nofollow blog is complete opposite of Dofollow blog. It doesn’t allow search engine spiders to crawl site and follow the link. If you comment on a nofollow blog, search engine spiders will not crawl your link and will not follow your link back to your site & it brings no benefit on SEO for your site. So it is useless to comment on nofollow blogs.
