    What is the main importance or drawback of nofollow links in link building.
    SEMrush
    I have heard some people saying that Nofollow lInks are also useful for link building as it makes natural your links, is it correct?

    Is that true? While i get the answer is totally different which no follow link is useless which we not support to build it while it will not help in SEO at all.
    But when i check on the backlink , it do have point as well. So i also wonder is it totally not help at all or it still useful.

    Nofollow links are useless whether in getting link juice or authority, but sometimes we can build some complementary nofollow links to attract traffic.

    I think if you have the quality comments than you can get the targeted traffic from the blogs.

    No follow links do not have a significant impact, but they are still improtant as a small part of your link profile. If you don't have any no follow links it can look suspicious.

    The SEOmoz Search Ranking Factors study is a great resource on the value of different link types. They just updated it for 2011.

    The dofollow and nofollow attributes are originally created by Google to reduce the amount of spam in the blogging community. Before it was implemented, many people like to leave their links in the comment body while commenting on the blog posts.

    Although "no follow" links do not pass on pagerank, the link anchor text may still be used by Google to build a websites search profile

    NO FOLLOW links help in getting some traffic and there is no harm if they stay there. They are still back links that count. However, they are not crawled or counted by bots and Google rejects them for PR. Though, I am repeating but its natural if someone has some percentage of no follow links. You can not avoid them 100% whether they give you link juice or not, traffic will come.

    Yes you are right, getting nofollow links mean to say that the link building process is natural, as well as nofollow links are being counted as a vote too. Apart from this, if a site has good traffic, even that offer nofollow link to you, still it is helpful, because at least you can get some referral traffic on that case.

    Google Consider only do follow link. There will be no benefit from No Follow link as a Backlink. But is can create traffic to the sites.
