    Im not sure what you mean by "do follow" links but if you are talking about the robots meta tag it can be helpful to use noindex, follow rather than an entry in your robots.txt file.

    Arrow DoFollow This


    DoFollow Links are standard incoming links that do not have the nofollow attribute. Go to View, Source. The nofollow can be found in the <meta name to block the whole web page at engines or the <a href to block specific links.

    Absense of nofollow tag will also work fine, i don't think dofollow tag is necessary or useful.

    There's nothing like a dofollow tag.

    The Dofollow "movement" is just a reaction among bloggers against the generalisation of the "rel=nofollow" attribute.

    The rel="nofollow" attribute was intended to fight against spam in blog comments, and some blog scripts like WP have integrated it in their code, so it is the default option and you need either to edit the code or to install plugins to get rid of it.

    • distinctseo agrees : nofollow does a lot more now too.
