The reason it’s important to get dofollow links pointing to your website, is because dofollow links functions as votes in the search engines You signal to the search engines that the site is important and should rank higher by having dofollow links pointing to it. Unlike the nofollow tag in the source code of your website, dofollow gets followed by the bots like GoogleBot, BingBot and the other bots of the search giants.
Is nofollow without value then?
No. Nofollow has a value in the sense that we assume the nofollow links gets counted to determine if the link profile of the website is natural or if it looks artificial to the algorithms. I say that we assume it’s important since it’s close to impossible to find any way to prove that it is in fact how the search algorithms work.
