    If a link shows no attributes about dofollow or nofollow, how would I know if it sends me link juice? Should I ask the one placing the link to add rel=”dofollow”?

    All links are followed unless stated otherwise.

    If the article has been posted then check the source code.

    I’ve never heard of “dofollow” since that’s the default. It is not needed. Just check that the source code does not have NOfollow.

    Besides source, check if there is a nofollow scheme in robots.txt and as well check if there are http-headers nofollowing all links in that page.

      Yeah, I was looking for an answer like this. Thanks!

    A dofollow tag isn’t needed. So long as the page isn’t blocked or there’s no nofollow tag, you can assume the link can pass equity.
