I had thought this would be covered, but perhaps I'm searching in the wrong place. Everything I can see relates to nofollow links.


I'm curious about receiving traffic to a nofollow page on my site. For example, I recently held a live event and want to make resources from the event available to the audiences of my speakers. So I have a page that is nofollow, since I don't want it indexed, but speakers would like to link to. (I guess the fact that anyone could find my page through searching THEIR sites means I don't mind people finding it that much, but nevertheless...)


The question is, does a nofollow page that receives dofollow link receive value from sites from high domain authority? I realize the nofollow page wouldn't rank anyway, but would I recive other benefits to the domain in general?

"nofollow" links have a secret life that apparently no-one knows about



high domain authority

There is no such thing ... at least nothing that you can find or calculate as a numeric value.




I realize the nofollow page wouldn't rank anyway

Way, way, way off the mark on that. A 'page' (URL) that has a "nofollow" value for the robots meta directive can and WILL 'rank', it simply indicates to SE bots that the links on the page should NOT be used for URL discovery and no 'value' from the URL will be passed on.


dofollow does not exist either.



since I don't want it indexed,

If you do not want it indexed you should block it in robots.txt or with a robots meta directive of NOINDEX.
