When it comes to link building, SEO experts must check backlinks for nofollow and dofollow attributes; because nofollow links do not pass PageRank and anchortext. Nofollow relation attribute normally used by webmasters to secure their PageRank.

If you don’t want to pass PageRank then you can make all low quality external links nofollow; the nofollow tag is a signal for Googlebot that you don’t trust that link. But making all of the external links nofollow isn’t a good practice, because by this you will also make all trusted links nofollow, while Google knows that those nofollow sites are trusted and you are presenting them as untrusted, it will leave a negative impact upon crawler.

Also, if you want dofollow backlinks from others, you must give dofollow backlinks to others. If all webmasters think that nofollowing all of the links is a good practise, nobody will pass PageRank and anchortext, and both of these are bases of link building and SEO.

Webmasters who want to check that if the under observation link is nofollow or dofollow, usually check it via source of the page. But what if you want to check links in bulk for nofollow attribute? it can take time and will be irritating for you. Statistics by W3school shows that near about 60% of internet users, use Google Chrome, that’s why I am going to share some nofollow highlighter chrome extensions that will help you to highlight all nofollow links available on a webpage.
