    Do follow links are links where the search engine robots will 'follow' the link wherever it takes them. As opposed to no follow where they will ignore the link.

    "Pinging" pinging your blog basically tells search engines/social network sites that you have made an update/change/posted something to your website and they should check it out.

    many things.
    Home Page:
    rel="****************" is a little piece of code in the HTML code.

    Some put it next to the links in their websites.

    like this -> <a rel="****************" http://....

    This tells the Google spiders or "Search engine spiders" or Search engine bots to come in and follow that link and index it or give it credit as a resource or a website that is worthy of giving credit to.

    Most people don't bother even posting that because the search engines will follow all links unless you tell them not to.

    This is why most people use "nofollow"

    If you have pages on your site or you are linking to a site that you do not want to give credit or "Spread the wealth around" then you "nofollow"

    Does this make sence?

    EDIT: it looks like they took the nofollow and changed it for stars since it was code.

    um, I just noticed that your name is seo_master. Don't you think that is just a tad bit premature. If you do not understand something simple as ping or **************** and then lable yourself as a master then people feel you are mis representing.

    That would be like wearing Military metals for combat and you never even joined the Military. Not comparing SEO to combat but you get the drift..... maybe :confused:

    and I just noticed your name is 'seo-master'

    you'll probably want to work hard to earn that name, especially if you didnt know what pinging was....

    thank u all, no doubt BHW is the best forum not only in blackhat techniques but in whitehat also.............once again thanks everyone that helped a lot.

    @Victoriavain Hello, my friend, you really did a great job and I really appreciate it. And for the "seo_master"...........hahahaha.....that was a good catch...actually, several months ago, me and my friend were used to look into the BHW everyday and we always got amazed how everyone was conrtibuting in this forum...and I thought this is the right place to learn the SEO......and then i also registered....and when I was registering I thought what would be the best name for it.....first I thought "seo_beginner" and then I thought that this name would be as it is even if I learned the SEO....so thats the reason I wrote "seo_master"....lol

    And its not like I don't know SEO, it's like there were few topics that I wasn't clear about but thanks to u, u made my day!
