Guest Blogging & Do-Follow Links

One of the reasons that guest posting on other blogs has become so popular is that it often offers the best kind of inbound link to your site: a do-follow, contextual link from a relevant, important site. In this post, we will explain what a do-follow link is, why it is important, and how to determine whether your guest host is really providing do-follow links.

What Is a Do-Follow Link

Many of you already know what a do-follow link is but, for those that do not, here is a an explanation of a do-follow link and why it is important in your website promotional efforts.

The concept of a do-follow link did not exist before 2005.  At this time, all links were the same and they were all “do-follow” so there was no need for a name.  It was not until the introduction of “no-follow” links that links needed to be identified as “do-follow” or “no-follow”.

No-follow links were originally introduced to prevent comment spam.  As people had realized that comments on blogs carried a lot of weight with search engines, they began spamming comments to elevate themselves in the search engines.   The introduction of no-follow put a big dent in comment spam, though it still exists to great extent today.

People soon realized a further value in no-follow and began implementing it to sculpt page rank.  Essentially, they would no-follow most of their outbound links (except their own!) to look better in the eyes of Google.

Now, as people seek to promote their content, we find them continually asking:  “Does this site provide do-follow or no-follow links?”.

Does Guest Posting Provide Do-Follow Links?

As we look at submitting guest posts to other blogs, we need to know if that host blog provides do-follow links.  It might just be a determining factor in our decision to submit a guest post to them.

So, let’s take a look at the difference between do-follow and no-follow in the next paragraph.  Can you find the do-follow and no-follow link?

No-Follow vs Do-Follow Example

[row_box style=”border box_white box”]

In an article entitled How To Check Whether A Link Is Nofollow Or Dofollow?, the author mentions a good Firexfox add-on to quickly determine if a link is do-follow or no-follow.


Well, did you get it?

As we can see in the photo below, where I use a Firefox add-on to quickly highlight no-follow links, the link to the Firefox add-on is the no-follow link.

To create a no-follow link, you simply add a no-follow tag to the link as you see below:

<a rel="nofollow" href="" target="_blank">good Firexfox add-on</a>

Using the Firefox add-on mentioned above (and there are many others that do the same thing), you can easily look at guest posts on a blog to determine if they provide do-follow links to the people who are submitting a guest post.

You need to be careful because many of these guest hosts want your quality content but do not provide a do-follow link in return.  Fortunately, you now have the tools to determine whether a link is truly do-follow.
