I want to tell you about the difference between follow vs no-follow. This is a concept that is created by Google only and they use it as a way for a website owner to be able to pass links strength or not.
So you can so as a web site owner you can decide whether a link that you’re making to some other place. Passes on links in Google terminology it’s called link juice. And the way it works is every page on the Internet is determined by Google to have a certain amount of strength which is also based on the incoming links and the main authority of that site.
Right so every page has a certain strength and that links strength is divided by all the things that it points to.
So if you point to say you have a link strength of and you point to five different Web sites. Well, guess what each of those links gets. One-fifth of the strength approximately right. But you can decide on whether something should pass. No link strength and all the links strength go to the other links.
So why is this important?
It’s important when you are getting a link. You should know whether the link passes between Jews to your Web site. And let me just show you how to look fine under following horses and all follow and basically be able to tell which links are followers do not follow.
Now we are looking here at my Twitter profile and you can see that there is a lot of links here. I put some links in my little description. Also, I put a link in this race here to my Web. And every tweet I make has a link right. And let’s go through these and let’s examine whether there follow or not follow. And here’s how you go. So I’m on the Chrome browser.
When you open the Chrome browser you go you developer view source and you’re going to get a lot of HD Out. A lot of. We are going to do and I’m going to increase the size of this that’s so you can see there’s better control. I’m going to lose control and I’m going to do HSF which is the H.A. markup for leaks.
Right. And you can see this is a style sheet. This is not interesting in and by the way you can see here on top there’s or. They just go.
I mean just going to narrow down my search a little bit. As you can see so that I get to the relevant links and so there are links on that page. And when I go to the next one this is still not relevant. This is not relevant. And we’re soon going to get to some of the relevant ones. And still not relevant.
OK, now we’re getting to some good stuff right. Because this is actually some of the links like to my website. Right. You see it’s a link right here. Prep the problem you go to my website that’s they asked him how for this link here for a millennium.
And you can tell right away it says well no-follow. He does not follow the pastor’s knolling just right. So what does that mean? And you can literally go through every other link in here and you can take a look at it was going to See another one just to you know somewhere down the page. Maybe it’s that I want to get links to my. So this is one of mine. This is the demo for one of my tweets. And in here somewhere it’s a little bit of a mess but in here you get the wings are not far right you see the snowfall.
So this is social sharing.
Doesn’t that essentially cast link juice as we know it is still valuable for us? Because you know social sharing is a site is a different kind of a sign. Of quality, because people are sharing it that means it must be good but it doesn’t pass any juice right. And your concern with this no foul thing. And here you can see that all the links are essentially that I post are no-follow. So if you actually want to get this link juice from the page.
It’s not going to happen to you in this way. And you can examine every other page on the Internet in the same exact way and find the links in the Him that are the links to your page and see if there are follow or love out. And sometimes you can even ask the webmaster if it is enough how to change it to you know to erase. That no follow clause.
So it can be a good link that says link juice to you and that’s something you should kind of keep in mind when you’re getting your links because you may be thinking you got a good link but it’s in the Fall right. So that’s something you want to always watch. Either links from a web site or they follow or not follow their profile. Like you don’t.
A lot of the benefit of you know that you would get if it was a following. And I want to just make a small idea that this is only a google thing. And because of that, it’s up to google how they interpret it.
So we don’t this is just a suggestion that our webmaster makes to Google. Now how Google actually reacts to this and how they’re all doing with them. Users this varies very much on a case by case basis. And I think it’s you know it’s actually it’s like everything with Google is very complex. So you know it’s just a rough guideline I would say.
I’m sure they count some of the following because of the other attributes of those things. And so you can still get other benefits from you know falling. Just maybe not passing that link juice that every page can potentially pass.
