Let us understand this thing with an example. Suppose you have a blog and you have given a link to my blog anywhere in a post of that blog and I have DoFollowed that HyperLink.

So whenever in the future Google crawlers will crawl that page of your blog, and they will scan that page. So that crawler will also go to my website or blog page through your page.

Google Crawlers will feel that you are recommending and you have full faith that my blog is trusted and genuine, that’s why you also go to this link and scan it too. With the help of which my blogpost will also get indexed and crawled in Google.

But they are not so effective and powerful in comparison to DoFollow ones.

For this, first of all, you have to go to the link you want to check in your browser, right-click on it and then click on the (Inspect) option. Or you can also go to that link (Ctrl+Shift+I).

After going to Inspect, now a window of HTML Code will open in front of you. In which you can find out whether this link is Dofollow or Nofollow.


If the link is NoFollow then,

<a href=”” rel=”nofollow”>
