You should add nofollow link for all those external websites which you do not trust. Apart from this, nofollow link should also be added for Affiliate & Sponsored Links and Untrusted Content. It saves you from Google penalty.

First of all you need to understand what is NoFollow link? NoFollow links are the links that you need to add on your website/blog for own profit, but you don't want to inform google or any search engine that you added that link. It's like a Black Money!!!

You can use NoFollow link for untrusted websites and sometimes for Affiliate links. and If you are not sure about its a good link or bad, use NoFollow.

Nofollow links are used to indicate to search engines that a certain link should not be used for the purpose of determining the ranking of a webpage. There are a few situations in which you may want to use the nofollow attribute on a link:

Sponsored content: If you are linking to content that you were paid or compensated to promote, you should use the nofollow attribute to indicate that the link is sponsored.

Affiliate links: If you are linking to products or services that you are an affiliate of and receive a commission for any resulting sales, you should use the nofollow attribute.

User-generated content: If you have a website or blog that allows users to submit content, such as comments or forum posts, you should use the nofollow attribute on links within that content.

Low-quality content: If you link to a webpage that you consider to be low-quality or unreliable, you should use the nofollow attribute to indicate that you do not vouch for the content.

It's worth noting that using nofollow links doesn't prevent the links from being followed by the users visiting the site, it's just a way to indicate to the search engines that these links should not be used as a factor in determining the ranking of the webpage.

Nofollow is an HTML attribute that can be added to links on a web page to tell search engines not to follow or crawl that particular link. When a link has the nofollow attribute, it essentially tells search engines that the linked page is not endorsed or vouched for by the linking site, and it doesn't want to pass any link equity or "link juice" to that page.

So when should you use nofollow on links? Here are a few scenarios where using the nofollow attribute might be appropriate:

1.Untrusted or spammy sites: If you're linking to a site that you don't trust or that you suspect might be spammy, adding the nofollow attribute can help prevent your site from being associated with it in the eyes of search engines.

2.Paid links or sponsored content: If you're getting paid to include a link on your site, whether it's for an affiliate program, sponsored content, or any other type of advertising, it's important to use the nofollow attribute to avoid violating search engine guidelines against paid link schemes.

3.User-generated content: If you allow users to contribute content to your site, such as comments or forum posts, adding the nofollow attribute to any links they include can help prevent your site from inadvertently linking to spammy or low-quality content.

4.External links on pages with thin or low-quality content: If you have pages on your site with thin or low-quality content, adding the nofollow attribute to any external links on those pages can help prevent them from passing any link equity to those pages.

In general, it's important to use the nofollow attribute sparingly and only when necessary. Overusing it can potentially harm your site's overall link profile and make it look like you're trying to manipulate search engine rankings.
