    do follow or no follow?


    When I want to link exchange with some other website or when commenting, do I need dofollow links or nofollow link.

    on what links should I concentrate on?

    if concentrate any one links, is that does effects my site popularity, PR...etc?

    According to me when you comment on any website you concentrate on only page authority not a dofollow or nofollow. Because both are best.

    As per my knowledge both NoFollow and DoFollow back-links are important to maintain page rank. If you get DoFollow back-links you will get extra benefit of having link-juice where as if you get NoFollow links you won't be benefited by link-juice but you can get traffic on your website.

    Hey cholletikumar
    For improving your websites PR and visibility over SERP dofollow links are helpful, try to get as much as you can (but from quality sites); nofollow links will only generate some traffic.
    Try to keep a good ratio of nofollow and dofollow links towards your website, having only one type of link might also effect your ranking.

    OK, just to clear a couple of things up

    Nofollow links as they are referred to use the rel="nofollow" attribute in the A anchor tag. Links (anchors) without the nofollow attribute are not really called dofollow links they are just links. There is no dofollow attribute.

    Because both are best
    Both of anything can't be best! One can be better or worse than the other.

    Generally in seo terms you would prefer to have a link that does not contain the nofollow attribute to your site as that passes link juice and page rank.

    Fundamentally, a link should be relevant and useful.

    Do follow links are important according to Google's point of view and no follow only gives you traffic.
