    Technically, there is no such thing as a do follow link. There are only, surprise surprise, LINKS!

    The standard format for a link is:
    • <a href="url">Link text</a>

    Some sites/pages, however, make use of the no follow attribute which tells search engines not to follow the specified link. It looks like this:
    • <a href="url" rel="nofollow">Link text</a>

    There is no such thing as:
    • <a href="url" rel="dofollow">Link text</a>

    If an SEO is referring to a do follow link, they simply mean, a link (first bullet).

    Dofollow is a link attribute that instructs search engine robots to crawl the website link and index it in search engines. They links help to build backlinks for your website for search engine ranking, and also helps to drive good traffic to your website.
