    There is no technical value to no-follow links. That being said, however, if your backlink profile has very few or zero no-follow links it will be obvious to Google that you are just doing link building and you'll get punished. You want a natural looking back link profile, which has both do follow and no follow links.

    Indirectly nofollow links might have many benefits like it can bring direct traffic to your website and can make your site looks more natural from SE's point of view.

    Nofollow links have been shown to improve your ranking. The only thing they do not do is pass pagerank. Lets say your website is a PR1. Getting nofollow links will not improve it to a PR2, but they WILL increase your SERP listing.

    Agree - - Nofollow is also very useful in SERP ranking, as well helps to increase MOZ DA and PA.

    Hi, No value for NoFollow link. if you maintain dofollow and nofollow ration then it would be beneficial for SERP.

    social sharing like twitter, facebook and Google + all are no follow only. Then is it consider to be a spam?

    Some correction for G+
    what i can see is your G+ profile is nofollow, but the link you share is Dofollow. another smart way to get dofollow links.
    its google and they will do anything to make G+ number one.

    As far as I know, +1 that you get have no impact on search ranking, but I didn't know that shared links are dofollow. Thank you.

    I was reading some where that Moz claim that G+ plays an important role in search ranking, but matt from google clarifies that its not so like that,

    But if site is not getting index in google fast, G+ is the best option, to get it index, as google crawl more frequently.

    I go with matt that G+ is also a point of considering serp, but not fully.

    A natural link profile is made of follow and no follow links. Actually the "natural" percentage of nofollow to follow links should be something like 80% for nofollow and 20% for follow links, so no follow links are very important for your profile link, even if they carry no weight.

    Yes, Nofollow links help you increase your ranking in SERPs but not help you to increase your PageRank.
    Don't forget to use them to diversify your backlink's profile. In my tests, Nofollow links helped me in increasing ranks and I suggest them to use :)

    Yes, but who cares for pagerank now, as its very easy to manipulate, and who cares if their site is ranking pretty well even if they dont have PG, what i discovered that, webmasters are more interested now a days on DA as compare to PG

    Hello,
    The idea of nofollow is to have NO value for PageRank. However, if link sends traffic than it is valuable for SEO. They will not help you rank. But they help with your link diversity by having a wide range of links from multiple sources making it look a bit more natural. But then it could also hurt if the links are on totally irrelevant sites and look spammy with 200 other poorly posted blog comments.
    Short answer you wasted your money and need to come up with a better strategy. Have a nice day :)

    No Follow link tells search engine bots not to follow the link. The link passes on no SEO value. It essentially exist only for people, not for search engines or it helps you to shown as natural.

    Might be am wrong, but what i think is and what i know is, No follow tag tells Google, Not to pass any PR juice to that link.

    I think till now no Any SEO specialist of Our Mod came up with suggestions on this topic.
    Can i request one please to clear the doubt.

    ( I use both it doesn't matters to me, nofollow or dofollow. i only care for links and that as well from domains who have better ranking then me, specially DA and PA. and i have got pretty good results )

    You can get benefit from nofollow links in many ways in terms of seo.

    Natural link profile is main thing, if you are using both nofollow and dofollow you would be able to build natural links.

    You would get some traffic, which is beneficial to your website, traffic is also one factor in SEO.
