Is the Do Follow to No Follow link ratio important?

    I just paid someone on Fiverr to give me a one time backlink report on my website. Turns out I have 5,849 do-follow links and 28 no-follow links. Is this bad? I'm assuming this raises a red flag with Google? Should I try to get some more no-follow links to balance it out?

    .

    I haven't got a clue what Google thinks or even if it rises any flag, but I personally prefer a higher ratio of no follow links; as long as it's not spam and especially links from quality sites where I can get visitors from.

    It's said having very low "no follow" to "do follow" ratio makes the site look shaddy.

    Dear,
    Your no-follow link ratio is too low. In order to show that you work organically, enhance the ratio of no-follow links to make your working more natural.

    You need to have a good mix of both link types to make things look natural.

    your mind :P
    You gotta have a good mix of no and do follow links, with around 30% of ******** links and 70% no follow. This way it looks natural and safe for your site, and you won't get any penalty or red flag.

    I cant give you a direct answer, but I can tell you what the testing I am doing right now is producing. I started with 15000 keywords in Scrapebox. This produced 5 million sites, after deduping there were 2.3 million urls. I began posting pingbacks with GScraper to a test url on those 2.3 million links, and that is almost done (currently at 2.1 million posts). I am ignoring captcha's and looking for auto approve.

    I have 426715 successful posts. Those posts break down to:
    10 autoapprove Do follow; and
    626 autoapprove no follow links.

    The remaining 426079 are currently unknown, but most likely follow the above pattern when they are not moderated.

    I think there should be a balance between the two. All do-follows do sound dodgy.
