Do I really need to build N-0-F-0-L-L-0-W links?

    Hey guys,

    I was reading here and noticed people make it a point to build some nofol. links to look natural.

    seo-addict concluded that his clients with approximately equal proportion of dofol. /nofol. links weren't hit as bad as those who had mostly dofol. (back in 2012)
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...experiment-changing-anchors-blog-network.html

    I have a newish site with natural links. In Ahrefs it has 28 nofol /134 dofol
    It actually does quite well for what it is but I wanted to build more links as niche seems easy and it has a potential to become something big.

    So my question is: is 28/134 dangerous proportion to have? Should I go ahead and build more nofol for every additional dofol I plan to build?

    All these links actually did happen naturally but I think that was mainly because I was mentioned on one very popular site and then all these sites basically republish what they say and even translate it to other languages so I ended up with a lot of dofol.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't worry too much about it!! If you did want to build a few more nofollow just do a bit of blog commenting or forum posts!!

    I dunno where people get this BS. There is no "magic ratio" of do-follow/no-follow. There are only good links and shit links.

    It just so happens a lot of "shit links" are no-follow (ie spammy blog comments), but that doesn't mean a no-follow link is bad.

    A lot of high quality sites use no-follow links (ie Wikipedia). Just concentrate on getting good links and you won't have to worry about anything else.

    Nofollow and its derivatives are no longer auto-censored as far I know, FYI.

    You should stop and consider that your site is getting the very best natural links possible, and the possibility of those links producing more links long term is very high.

    If you start adding to the total, and screw it up, you are going to undo all the good you have done so far.
