    Ive read in multiple guides that they do this, however doesn't google bonus you for correct usage of outgoing follow/nofollow links?

    Also how about internal links? Should i nofollow all links outgoing from homepage to other pages on my websites?

    All my outgoing links are no-follow, all of them.

    Forget the comments that say it looks natural, you'll never gain anything by giving a no-follow link to anybody, keep that juice contained within your site site, better look at silo structure.

    In Link Building,inbound links(IBL) will have more value because it will give you LinkJuice for your site.
    You can use Nofollow for your outbound links to sustain your LinkJuice on your site.
    In your site,you can use Follow links to other pages it will help you in ranking but don't make it much.
    And it should link to the relevant pages of your site be clear on it.

    There is no exact ration for no follow & do follow links. Mix up of do follow and no follow will do the trick.

    Google like using of both links.It depends on your need.If you want to have link juice for your site from other site use do follow.Or else if you want sustain your link juice in your site itself then use no follow.But be sure it links to the related pages of your sites.

    Why on earth would you no-follow links to your internal pages? You're telling Google you don't want it to trust your own links to your own pages?

    For a very few outbound links on my site.

    But it should be nofollow.

    And you should have a link of ******** and EDU backlinks

    I always thought it was because it can give higher page power to a certain page while unplanned. For example the home page refers to it multiple times, wordpress sidebars etc suddenly a page has 70 incoming follow links while the home page gets 20.

    You can nofollow the Outbound links.
    You can follow all the outgoing links from your homepage to other pages on your website.
    It helps you to increase your ranking.

    Outbound is pretty freaking self explanatory, come on now.

    No-follow all outbound links.

    These are links that you place on your website that leads to other sites.

    If you're using silo structure and want to interlink to an article outside of that silo, no-follow it, this is inside your site.

    If you're linking an article in the same silo, then leave it normal, this means a no-follow.

    Take a look at some major sites, they all no-follow their outbound links, all of the links, they use a WordPress plugin for that, either coded privately or publicly, unsure.

    In the end people will do whatever they want to anyway, so I suggest you test it yourself and see the results, but this is just basic stuff.

    It's amazing how many people still didn't understand how nofollow really works: Nofollow does not mean you keep the juice, it just means it doesn't transfer juice to the linked site.

    It's like a pipe, "do-follow" the water flows in and comes out at the other end. Nofollow it still flows in, but vanishes, it doesn't flow out on the other end. Basically means the linking site loses an equal amount of juice via nofollow and "do-follow", it's just a difference on the site receiving the link.

    Nofollow does not retain link juice!

    Thankyou. I was going to say, some of you guys need to read up on link sculpting and why it doesn't work any more.

    I don't bother with no-follows at all.
