Hi everyone!

It seems like you are all happy with my SEO Guide series, so that’s why I will be doing some more blogposts in the same series with small tips for every blogpost you write.

Why Nofollow Links Are Important!

Hi everyone!

Yesterday there was an entire #fblchat dedicated to different blogging aspects of the law. This chat also included the attribute rel=nofollow which got a lot of people confused and nervous so I decided to do a blogpost on the subject clearing things up a bit.

This means that a website with a lot of links on the web might get a higher pagerank, this is why companies want to pay you to link their website on your blog. When you link a website let’s say hm.com you are telling Google that this website is to be trusted and that you like it.
