Anyone ever heard of a dofollow/nofollow link checker? How do people tell the difference anyways?
Look at the source code. If it says
rel="nofollow" then it’s a nofollow link. If it doesn’t, it isn’t.
What if a site doesn’t have one? It’s not dofollow or nofollow. Does it have a default setting usually?
Thank you very much.
Do Follow - Allows the link juice to your site from the existing site
No Follow - Doesn’t allows link juice to your site
In a web page if they given
then it is a No follow to the corresponding link / anchor text. If that No Follow is not given then it is a Do Follow relationship.
There’s no such thing as “dofollow”. There are links, which search engines follow, and there are “nofollow” links, which search engines don’t follow.
Firefox has an addon I used to have installed and worked really well
Searchstatus quake can display you nofollow links on a page. You will have to right click on SEO Quake and select ‘like through nofollow / noindex’.
Searching for nofollow in source is a good process too. But you will have to match the links utilizing anchor text and URL. Many pages have selective nofollows abled (comments in a blog).
You’re probably talking about NoDoFollow - I use that as well, and it works great.
By using Firebug, we can see that the link is do-follow or no-follow
There are many add-ons which highlights the no-follow link. If you are using firefox search for the add-on no-follow and you would get many result. It comes along with PR, alexa rank and backlinks etc with different options. I use swoosty. It highlights the no-follow link in pink colour so that we know that whether it is worth to place a link over there.
You can check from the source code like rel=“no follow” are nofollow links and you can use nodofollow Firefox addon for that.
All that needs to be said here has been said.
