    Increase linking root domains or nofollow links?


    This is tricky. A site currently has lots of dofollow links (actually 99% of all its external links) but the number of linking root domains is very small, and the number of dofollow linking root domains is even smaller.

    I learned that the ratio of dofollow vs nofollow links should be balanced otherwise it could be very suspicious to Google. I also know that there should be a greater number of linking root domains (obviously many of the dofollow links came from the same domains - which reduces the value of the links).

    But which do I prioritize of the two? Are my thoughts even on the right track?

    Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

    Iv never known of any issues arising from this to date, besides Google does not follow links which are no follow, so therefore is none the wiser at present, whether this changes is anyone's guess, you would think they would use this as a metric to stop sites gaining links which are not natural.

    But your website should have quality links so don't bother in dofollow or nofollow.

    Hello Sandy.....
    I never heard that the ratio of nofollow and dofollow should be balanced because Google never fetch nofollow links its always fetch quality backlink.
