Hi,

Nofollow links are of no use from the seo point of view because Google does not transfer any page rank juice across these links. So they send traffic to your site but don't get any page rank juice to your web page.

Hi,

Thanks, I read the link you shared but I am still bit of confused regarding the use of nofollow links, will it be useful to get a link back with nofollow tag from other site? or we should avoid? It is ok with comment posts generated by users but what about directories or forums links?

Cheers,

No-follow links can't give your site backlink.

According to Google Webmaster guidelines and Matt Cutts, nofollow links help search engines to determine whether a link should be followed or credit the link or not. So in some case having nofollow tag in the link and not having the link is same. So nofollow links should not treated as proper backlink in the eye of search engines.
My suggestion is to create great high quality contents which will attract other webmasters in similar niche and they will refer your website some times. Search engines love natural links. Also try article submission to good neighborhood blogs.

No follow is the value that is given to attribute called rel of a tag. By valuing the element search engine not follow that link.

In no follow link it is indicated by the name that not to follow this type of link, that means it is not useful regarding SEO. No follow link is only used to redirect to a URL but the value of the page redirected does not increases.
