Tag Archives: No Follow

We often hear the term No Follow and Do Follow when it is related to Page Rank increase purposes as there are some websites that allow Do Follow while others do not and choose to remain No Follow. However, what do the terms mean and how do they affect the Page Rank?

Do Follow

Do Follow websites mean that the websites are passing page rank when there are people do some activities in them such as like forum postings or blog comments. So, when you post any to these Do Follow websites with back links to your website, you are able to increase your own website page rank as the websites allow it by removing the No Follow Tags.

As the Do Follow website owners, this will result on you having to pass and share page rank to those who post in your website. There will be no bad effect if those posters do not have bad credibility and are not spammers. However, what if they are? If they are; consequently, your website page rank will decrease as search engines surely do not like spammers.

Furthermore, as the ones who post in the Do Follow websites, it enables you to gain higher page rank by posting to these websites as they are passing page rank when there are links back to your own websites. But it is better that you do not misuse this chance to do spamming activities.

No Follow

No Follow websites mean they have insert No Follow tags in their websites so they do not pass page rank when there are somebody posting anything to their websites with back links. With the No Follow tags activated, there are effects for both the websites owners and the visitors who post.

For the No Follow website owners, they do this so it doesn’t attract spammers or page rank hunters to post there as I believe you will not be attracted to post in No Follow websites when you are in the need to increase page rank. Additionally, by using No Follow tags, they don’t lose their precious Page Rank to others as they can keep it all for them.

For those who post, as it has been mentioned just now, No Follow websites will not help you at all to gain page rank as they are not sharing it. If you are willing to gain page rank, it is better to find Do Follow blogs or forums websites so you are not wasting your time. However, if you are just looking for traffic or having any no intention at all, then you can keep on posting in No Follow websites.

So, what I will ask now is, which one will be your choice and what will be your purposes?
