What is a no-follow link?

No-follow is a HTML attribute that can be used in the link tag. Example:<a href=”; rel=”nofollow”>. This attribute does not alter the layout or functionality of the link. It just tells the spider bots used by Search Engines not to follow the link. This is used by some blogs, forums, wikis and other websites on all their outgoing links to prevent link spamming. So if you are link building for a better rank in the search engines make sure to get links without the no-follow attribute.
