If you are thinking – What’s the need of NoFollow or DoFollow link checker-finder tool? Think again! I know, it is not hard to find the link relation for the particular website page.

Update – This post has been updated with new tools and the third tool named – NoDoFollow Link Finder Firefox Extension works no more.

But, following the manual process which involves right-click on a page and hitting Inspect Element is not worth if there are more than 5 pages. Is it?

I don’t think so!


Rather than, Why not you just add up a browser extension and automate the entire process?

Better isn’t it!

Now, as you are already aware of the power of DoFollow and NoFollow links and how they can affect SEO.

Easy to use tool which gives you the freedom to differentiate the results by styling CSS. Disable or enable the tool according to your preferences.

I have attached the developer page where you can find links for all supporting web browsers.

Essential settings to do after installing the NoFollow Chrome extension are –

  • Click on Extension’s icon > Options > Info Box. 
  • Select “Always” from Show Info Box and exit the page.

Mozbar chrome browser tool by Moz specifies External Followed Links in total that means you won’t be shown any links but just a number instead.
