Nofollow and Selfish Bloggers
Avoid using nofollow and gaining backlinks from blogs that use nofollow attribute.
You can’t get high quality backlinks from blogs that enable nofollow attribute.
According to SemRush, linking to them is worthless.
The use of nofollow emerged in 2005. Search engines invented nofollow attribute to resist spammers who use comments to plant spam links in a website.
Subsequently, Google recommended that websites should enable nofollow anytime they had a paid or sponsored link ad for the search engine to identity websites that pay for links.
Reason was to avoid being penalized for paid link ads such as affiliate links. But subsequently, SEO experts discovered that adding nofollow attribute to a link was a bad SEO practice.
Since then, bloggers have been trying to avoid nofollow links in the SEO efforts to get high quality backlinks.
And that resulted to the death of paying for backlinks.
Ordinarily, when you get high quality backlinks, the benefit is mutual between you and the website that links back to you.
But if the other website uses nofollow attribute, it prevents you from sharing in the juice.
If your SEO score on external factors has always remained the same, the implication is that your ranking on the search engine result page (SERP) is significantly low.
How can you end this roadblocks?
You’ll find the answer in this post. All you have to do is to get more high quality backlinks pointing to your website.
You may ask further, where would you get high quality backlinks – how would you get other bloggers embedding your links on their blogs?
Then the answer is coopetition.
Coopetition is when two or more businesses in the same industry compete and cooperate to increase their market shares and establish new business relationships.
You can end your backlinks challenges and begin to boost your ranking on the SERP by exchanging relevant links with your competitors instead of competing with them.
When you just started a business, you need more of cooperation or synergy. It gives you the chance to network with other players in your industry and improve your popularity.
Coopetition is simple. Just look for other businesses you can both be your brothers keepers and start exchanging your links.
Benefits of Coopetition
For clarity, let’s say you and I are in the same industry, I can approach you for high quality backlinks.
And if we both exchange our links on the platform of coopetition, we both share the following benefits:
- We won’t be paying for links building;
- You gain authority and I gain authority;
- You gain exposure and I gain traffic or exposure; and
- You and I can join forces to take down bigger competitors that resist us with their arbitrary use of nofollow attribute.
How it works?
Don’t forget backlinks are otherwise known as inbound links, which are the links that point to your blog from another website or blog.
Sometimes a link to your website from another website can boost your rank or damage it, depending on the quality or relevance of the website that points to you.
The quality here means that the blog pointing to your blog must be relevant to yours.
Let’s say you have a post on “social media marketing”, you’ll get the juice if you link to a post that is also talking about “social media marketing” or a very related topic.
Assuming your post url is http://example.com/social-media-marketing/, all you have to do is to embed the link in the other post that’s also talking about “social media marketing”.
You can equally get high quality backlinks to your blog when you do guest blogging.

Consequently, your ranking on the SERP increases the more you repeat this effort.
If you want your website to become popular, there’re hundreds of SEO efforts you need to make. The key effort is building high quality backlinks or inbound links for your blog.
Backlink is an external factor which has a lot of weight on the success of your business on the internet. No matter how optimized your blog is, you’ll get more good results with more high quality backlinks.
The only major SEO effort that can boost your popularity, or exposure or traffic is the amount of external links that point to your website.
