Now, what if we want that link on a highly secured Network available for reading all the time? Remember that we are talking about an internet network and we want that specific page should be available for other too.

So that they can get benefit or valuable information from that specific webpage. As anyone on the internet searches with some exact or related keywords to that specific topic can find all the time whenever he needs.

The other question people each time ask me is about what is the difference between dofollow social bookmarking sites and nofollow social bookmarking sites?

To understand the myth we have to first understand the nofollow and dofollow backlink. lets try to find out

What is a No Follow Backlink?

A no-follow backlink is a link that does not pass any credits /benefits of the source site to the website/blog where the link points to.

Let me short the above statement in an understanding manner that

No-follow links do not have any SEO value, and they will not add up to the link profile that search engines use to evaluate when ranking websites.

Moreover, the search engine bots will crawl on this posted link, but they will not literally follow where it is pointed to. (Or towards your site/blog)

What is a Do Follow Backlink?

On the other hand, do-follow is the link which passes SEO benefits of the website where it is built to the hyperlinked website. So you have to always create the do-follow links for your website to rank higher in SERP.

So when you are going to optimize your website with link building then you have to build links on the dofollow social bookmarking sites to look prominent in the search results.

same is the case with dofollow social bookmarking sites and nofollow social bookmarking sites as discussed above.
