    I think it works only to increase the metrics well and can be helpful in low competition niches but for high you will need do follow links in maximum. Though this is a great thread to follow and see your results.

    Just few do fo llow profiles, 98% nofollow. Maybe onpage and interlinking was good? I am still working on this.

    No follow links only help to drive visitors to the website, they don't harm your website.
    If you guys have tested then I would like to track how on my website that how no follow links help but there is no solid proof that no follow links help in ranking on Google.

    Nofollow blocks pagerank and anchor text from flowing to the linked page. While these 2 factors are important, there are many other ranking signals beyond these, and nofollow has no effect on these.

    My competiton made 1000domain link to my website with nofollow. The next weeks on a google update, rank dropped over night 60%.

    So? I think it matters. I can provide all the proof you need regarding my problem. Over NIGHT!
    Not even now after 3-4 mounth, i don't get back more than 10% of my rank/traffic of 60% loss. I disavow them, i send report, contact, everything i can possible do, and nothing.

    And i don't have any penality, manual action, spam, etc. Monitorbacklinks etc are ok.

    But "Google make it right for everybody" = yeah right, he don't give a crap about people like me/us. The people witch spam have always the best rank. And people witch actully works and don't invest in google adwords, never will succed.
    What Google tells and do, are 2 different things! Google "announcements" are fairy tales for people.

    Don't forget that google also is a PRODUCT. And they are making money.

    I use no-follow links pointed to the homepage in the early beginning stage of any money site, these links would have branded anchors only.. after few weeks those links usually makes me rank easily on the brand name and all it's variations, also I think It reduces the sandbox time for brand new fresh domains.

    I know, but i've been working for 5 years on a website, every single day, min 4 hours (i love what i do); and google destroy everything (rank,traffic) over night on 1 august, from 30k to 3k traffic; it's hard not to cry and keep going when google and competion are against you.

    Yes, Nofollow backlink also useful for natural ranking but is the ratio will perfect you will get a better result from search engine. if you build link building then you need to make a ratio like 80% ******** and 20% no-follow backlink. if you get a no-follow backlink from High authority websites it will useful for longterm ranking.

    Thanks

    When you leave a comment you must use a person't name. Instead use the kw you'd like to rank for.

    I don't even look at if they are do or no follow anymore.

    The way I see it is some link types are going to be no follow, some are going to be do follow

    If you only go after the do follow then you're missing out on a lot of platforms like forums/blog comments/profiles. All these are part of links profiles for any healthy website.
