As we already know that backlinks play a very important role in your SEO. If you have quality backlinks from high authority sites matching your theme, you gain better organic visibility. Before discussing in detail what are effective ways to gain backlink in 2018. I would like to provide the insight on types of backlink, and which types of the link should have a website.

What is backlink?

A backlink is nothing but incoming links pointing to a webpage. This can be a “dofollow” or “nofollow.” Any links that are pointing to a page counted as a backlink for that page to which it points.

Most of the time people are confused in backlink and outgoing links. I would like to explain the difference between the two. Backlink and outgoing links are a separate entity. To understand it let’s tale an example I have two webpages A and B. Webpage A passing a link to B. In this “B” is getting a backlink from “A,” and “A” is having one outbound link that is pointing to “B.”

What are the types of backlinks?

Backlinks are broadly classified into two main categories- “dofollow” and “nofollow.”

Dofollow – Dofollow backlink pass link juice. It means if your webpage is getting a backlink from high authority site you get the weight of that website.

Nofollow – Nofollow backlink does not pass link juice. It only diverts traffic.
