Getting traffic from search engines like Google or Yahoo are the main sources in SEO but link building is also an important process in SEO.

It helps us to drive more traffic on our blog/site and spreads our blog/site widely on the internet.

These backlinks also help us in improving our blog/site’s Google Page Rank and Alexa Ranking.

Well, Today we are going to discuss about building backlinks of our blog. So, below I have detailed backlinks, its kinds and how to increase backlinks.

What are Backlink?

Incoming links to your blog are known as backlinks.
Those links by which any user or visitor enters your blog are called backlinks.

Kinds of Backlinks

There are two kinds of backlinks. First one is DoFollow Backlinks and Second one is NoFollow Backlinks.

These two kinds are introduced by Matt Cuts and Jason Shellen in the year 2005 to help the webmasters for better SEO.

Below I have detailed these both kinds and you must read them carefully to understand them completely.

DoFollow Backlinks

Those links which are created with rel=’dofollow’ attribute or without any attribute are known as DoFollow backlinks.

Search engine’s crawler crawls all the content of your blog/site. When they will come on a backlink, They will check that is it DoFollow Backlink or NoFollow Backlink.

So if the backlink is DoFollow then they will follow the link and land on another web page for crawling.

That is why every webmaster wants to increase his/her blog/site’s DoFollow Backlinks and it helps in improving Google PR and Alexa Rank.

NoFollow Backlinks

Those links which are created with rel=’nofollow’ attribute are known as NoFollow Backlinks.

So if the backlink is created with the NoFollow attribute, then the search engine’s crawler will ignore it because this attribute does not allow the crawler to follow that link.
