Inbound high quality links from high PR sites are important for our DA and PA, but how do we get them? Let's first examine different type of links.
Did you know that there are different types of links? Both DOFOLLOW and NOFOLLOW links are important for increasing your domain and page rank in the eyes or Google, Bing and all the other search engines out there.
Most links are like this. Most of the social media sites, such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter only give you no follow links. What does this mean exactly?
Nofollow is an HTML attribute value used to instruct search engines bots that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index.
Does this mean that these links do not improve your ranking at all? No, they do, but much less than the other type of links we discuss next. Your links are always going to be mixture of NOFOLLOW and DOFOLLOW links and this is normal, something Google is expecting from you.
Dofollow links allow google (all search engines) to follow them and reach our website. Giving us link juice and a backlink.
Some social media, social bookmarking sites and forums do give you DOFOLLOW backlinks, hence growing your DA and PA.
