The best quality links are those “DoFollow Links” which you are getting from a High DA/PA website. This is the simplest definition of quality backlinks in link building strategy.
During the process of building backlinks, we follow different techniques to share our links. Be it social, web2.0 or blog commenting. Every marketer likes to share his promotional/blog/website link. But website owners are not giving any benefit of it by making all the shared links as “NoFollow”. A Nofollow link refers to backlinks that tell the search engines to not go any further, hence “nofollow”. By adding the no follow tag in a backlink, these links don’t transfer link juice.
