    Nofollow links attributes do not allow search engine bots to follow link. That means if the website owner is linking back to you with nofollow attributes, it does not pass on link juice. Only Humans will be able to follow the links.

    Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink. If a webmaster is linking back to you with this link both Search Engine and Humans will be able to follow you.

    Hi Friends,
    DoFollow
    It defines a usual hyperlink that tells Google and other algorithm bots that it can follow the path of the given link. If any website consists of a lot of inbound links heading internally then it is known as inbound links, Google gives more weight in SERPs by paying rich dividends to a website. Google can consider only the inbound links that can bring the bots to your website.

    NoFollow
    A complete opposite of DoFollow links. These hyperlinks don’t give permission to Google or its bots to follow the path given in website and analyze the link path to its destination. As a result, the SEO juice cannot use this channel and doesn’t get flown through it.

    Generally, NoFollow links are being used in various blog commenting sites or other areas in order to avoid spam degrading your SEO worth.

    No follow is a tag of HTML that used in the link. It's mean that google does not give any value to this link and when we do not paste any tag with a link then google considers it do-follow and gives fully values.
