NoFollow is HTML aspect used to inform the search engines crawlers for not index the particular link or hyperlink. NoFollow link attribute does not permit the search engines to follow the link. Meaning of this is if your website link from any external website with NoFollow attribute then it doesn't pass any link popularity or link juice. These kind of links are beneficial for human navigation.

An example of Nofollow Link:
<a href=”http://www.demowebsite1.com/” rel=”nofollow”> Demo Website</a>

One more factor of NoFollow,

Robots Meta Tag : <meta name=”robots” content=”nofollow” />

Using this tag you can inform to bots/crawlers/spiders not follow the whole links.

no follow doesn't count as back link to the site from search engine but it can be helpful as an traffic generate source if it's come from high pr sites.The idea behind a nofollow link is that a search engine will not click through a link flagged as such. A no follow link can be good or bad depending on the context of how it is utilized.

Nofollow is a way for webmasters to tell the search engine that don't follow this specific link.It is an HTML attribute value to instruct search engine bots that hyperlink should not link target rankings.

No follow is a link attribute that instructs spiders not to crawl the particular backlink on the webpage. Hence these links are never indexed in search engines. They are only used to build traffic from various external webpages.

A NoFollow tag is a way that allows webmasters to tell search engines “Don't follow links on this page" or "Don't follow this specific link." A link can have one or more rel attributes, where “rel” is short for “relationship”. These attributes help define the relationship a link has with a page that it points to.
Such links are used in blog or forum comments in an attempt to take away the incentive for automatic link spammers to place their links there.

How to add nofollow tag:-
Add a link to your text the way you normally would.

The link will look like this:

<a href="http://www.SponsorSite.com">My Sponsor Text</a>
Switch to HTML view.

Insert the NoFollow tag by editing the link as follows:

<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.example.com">My Sponsor Link</a>
