    Hey all!

    I have a question about no follow links. In the HTML there is the coding for no follow like this del = "nofollow"

    But is there specific coding for a do follow link? Or will it just automatically be taken as do follow?

    Thanks for your help.

    All links are do-follow unless it is explicitly state otherwise.

    You need not to define Do Follow links. You have to do it only for No Follow.

    Also the syntax for making a link nofollow is rel="nofollow" (not "del" like mentioned above).

    Ie: <a href="http://domainname.com" rel="nofollow">anchor text</a>

    D0follow isn't a real attribute, it's just a colloquial SEO phrase that refers to any link that isn't nofollow.

    Ah yeah I thought so. I just searched in google really quite cause I wasn't sure the layout and then copied the first one I saw ha ha. I don't often use them (I know I should vary my backlinks).
