First, let`s understand What are the No- Follow Links?

 

No follow links are those that do not pass any link. It`s just a sign for search engine saying that “Don’t follow this link” or “Don’t count this”.

 

Even though these links don’t pass any links , these are still pretty much important and valuable that`s is what will be discussed in this post.

 

Well, yes these link don’t directly help SEO but truth is these links helps a lot, it is one factor due to which your search engine ranking is stable.

 

  • Improve Website Traffic

 

Most importantly traffic because without quality traffic there won`t be any conversion of any form. If you get no follow link from any of relevant sources can directly help you to increase traffic to your website.

 

Regardless of what niche you are working into, a no follow relevant link will also be helpful to generate extra traffic to your website.

With no follow links you can improve your Domain authority and page authority that is most important factors among advertisers who only use these factors to start advertising through your website.

 

Although no follow links are not generally considered to be ranking factors for Google  but many other sites like moz, ahrefs, and alexa have complete index of all your links therefore if you have good number of no follow backlinks with good source then you can expect  increase in your DA, PA, and other Metrics.

Testimonials


  • I contacted Whitehats through their website and was immediately served by a customer service agent. I briefly explained my concern and gave my contact details. The same day in the afternoon I was contacted by an IT engineer and we scheduled a date for a visit to my apartment. Upon arrival the next day the engineer was polite, professional and confident and got the job done in an appropriate manner. I’m very satisfied with the service provided by Whitehats and plan to contact them in case of any future services. Therefore I would also recommend them for any IT related services.
