5 Important Facts About Do-Follow Backlinks
Those who have just stepped in the concept of backlinks, knowing the facts about do-follow backlinks can actually allow you to properly understand the concept.
The 5 facts about backlinking which we will be discussing are really important and needs to be understood in a proper manner.
1. How will you get the backlinks?
Once you successfully add the backlinks, there is always a doubt that we all have “When will we get the results?”.
There are multiple factors on it depends that you will get the backlinks or not.
Let’s take an example that you created one backlink (by guest post or commenting or in profile).
And after creating the backlink you checked in some paid or free tool that the backlink is reflecting in your account or not.
In most of the cases, you will not find that link in your do-follow backlink list.
The reason is your link is not indexed in google yet. Till now the link is not indexed it will NOT reflect in your backlink list. ( How to index backlink manually).
As soon the backlink will get index by the search engine it will start reflecting in your account.
Usually, it takes 2-8 weeks to index a backlink, but again it depends on the website where you have submitted your link.
- How active that website is?
- The URL on which you have created backlink is blocked in robot.txt
- How often search engine crawls the website.
Finally, you have two option
- Create the backlink and wait till it is getting index.
- Create a backlink and try to index it manually.

2. How many backlinks should be created from a single domain?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions by my followers.
And I always suggest them to add 1 or 2 backlinks to a single domain.
I don’t just say this random number to my followers it has some specific reason, the reason is the ration of no.of backlinks and referring domain should be genuine.
Let’s take two scenarios to understand this.
- Suppose, you have 100 backlinks from 50 domains.
- You have 100 backlinks from 5 domains.
Scenario 1st looks more genuine than scenario 2nd isn’t it?
The 1st scenario will add more authority to your domain because you have 80refering domains which means 50 different domains are referring to your website.
Which is great.
On the other hand in the 2nd scenario, you have only 5 domains that are referring to your website.
The 2nd scenario mostly happens due to commenting.
Sometimes, you will find various URLs in one comment.
Few of the new bloggers think that if they add more links in one comment they will get more backlinks but by mistakenly they do spam and when the search engines visit the websites and find multiple backlinks to the same domain then the algorithm of the search engines consider it to be spam.
Adding one URL will serve more effectively rather than adding multiple URLs.
Rather than adding various backlinks, it’s better to add a single one.
This is the reason we should not create more than 2 backlinks from one domain.
3. How Much Do-follow and No-follow Ratio Should Be For Your Website?
No, when we talk about the do-follow and no-follow ratio, you need to make sure that you are mostly trying to balance the ratio.
Basically, no-follow backlinks are something that you can easily find compared to do-follow backlinks.
Both of these backlinks have their own significants and benefits.
|Do-follow backlinks||No-follow backlinks|
|Gives us Link juice||No link juice provided|
|Helps to increase DA||It helps to drive traffic.|
|Helps in ranking||Not so effective to help in ranking.|
|Difficult to get||we can get easily.|
If you are only adding the do-follow backlinks then the algorithm of search engine will consider it to be spam.
Hence, you would not be able to get the best results.
Having a balanced ratio will allow you to get the best result also, search engines won’t consider it as spam.
According to me the balanced ratio of do-follow backlink and no-follow backlink should be either
- 90:10 ( which means out of 100 backlinks at least 10 should be no-follow.)
- 80:20 ( which means out of 100 backlinks at least 20 should be no-follow.)
- 70:30 ( which means out of 100 backlinks at least 30 should be no-follow.)
This ration is the best ration even if you have less do-follow and more no-follow backlinks in that case also no issues but it may impact your ranking in the search engines.
4. Domain-Specific Backlinks or Backlinks from Same Niche websites.
One of the biggest queries which I have been asked by various users is that “If a website is in Hindi, then do they need to add their backlinks to only the Hindi website?”.
Generally, it is something that can be considered as the subjective fact in terms of facts about do-follow backlinks.
In some cases, the algorithm of search engines might consider Hindi websites to give a higher priority since the backlinks are added to the Hindi website.
But there might also be some exceptional cases, where English websites are given higher priority on the Hindi website.
There are chances that the higher priority might be given to similar language websites but that does not mean that other languages will not get good results.
Most of the time, the other languages website might not get the same result as that of similar language websites but you cannot consider it to get negative results.
5. Where to create backlinks? (Root URL or Article URL)
When it comes to adding backlinks, then there are users who are a bit confused about whether to add backlink on the homepage or on the article of the website.
No matter what you search on the search engines, the links that get visible are of the articles and not of the homepage.
There are fewer chances that regarding any topic, the homepage will appear on search engines.
Make sure that you focus to add backlinks to the articles rather than that of the homepage for a better output.
