    What links should I use rel=no follow with?


    Hey yaul,

    My website has a lot of links to external sites, including amazon but also tons of other sites. Should all of these have rel=no follow? I also have my own amazon links with tracking id - what about those?

    Its all up to your choice mate. But, it is better to have less number of dofollow links in your site to maintain the quality of the site. But, you must definitely nofollow the links that are unrelated to your niche. Thanks.

    To be honest with you, I use no-follow in very few situations.

    As was mentioned, I might no-follow a site that I do not want to send value to - but if I don't value the information that site has, I'd question why I am linking to it in the first place.

    Some people still use no-follow on their internal pages like privacy policies, etc. - this is not necessary anymore, but if you feel inclined you might implement no-follow on links to pages on your site that you're not trying to get to rank. Again though, probably not worth your time to implement.
