Hello Hello,

 

I was reading lot's of different opinions regarding dofollow and nofollow links.

 

I experienced that many pages just do have nofollow links on their blog posts, etc. 

However.. it almost seems to be a new sport to mark every link that links from your homepage to an external source as NO-Follow.

 

But there is something.. I don't know.. I simple can't wrap my head around this.

 

Let's say I do have a page that writes about cookies.

And then I do have on that page really very interesting content.

And I also do excellent outgoing links,  to Government Sites and sites with a high Page Rank, Domain and Page Authority...

 

and let's further say, every single link getting out from my page to those sites.. is marked as No-Follow...

I mean... is this really smart ?

 

And if so, still not 100% clear to me why people are doing it ?

 

Well.. if all my outgoing links are marked as NO-Follow..  it seems to be also an indicator, that these links can not be very important, right ?

And if my outgoing links are marked as not important - how important or good is my content ?

 

 

I know ..  at the end it's always a personal choice and it might be some philosophy as well to keep the link-juice within your own pages ....

But would be interesting to know what you think about.

 

Also.. I was wondering.. if my outgoing links are all No-Follow links..   couldn't that effect the ranking actually in a negative way ?

No, in fact, it's stupid.

There IS no such thing as "dofollow".

 

Domain and Page Authority. are just useless metrics invented to sell a "SEO Toolkit"

 

 

However.. it almost seems to be a new sport to mark every link that links from your homepage to an external source as NO-Follow.

 

Only by the terminally clueless!

yeah.. ok.. that's what I thought...  like I said.. for me it's still unclear why people are so crazy about it ?

I mean.. what's the reason ?

what's behind it ?

 

is it just because they think they are going to lose link juice ?

Probably coupled with that they seem to think it's still 1995 and, to paraphrase Lennon  and McCartney .... All you need is links.
