    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.

    By default, all links are dofollow links unless they are modified to be nofollow links manually or are automatically changed by a website setting. Search engines crawlers follow dofollow links. ... Dofollow links pass along what the SEO community commonly calls “link juice.” Links are a vote for quality.

    These are the external link of a website provided by search engine. Do follow links makes you to enter the search engine which is provided.

    Dofollow Link is a hyperlink that is able to tell all search engines to pass along it’s page rank influence to an outbound link. If you will use or get do follow links then search engines will count your link in the eyes of Google, yahoo, Bing etc as back link for your site and you can get some positive value for your site ranking.
