No follow and do follow is such a thing that can have a deep effect on your site seo. You not only need many do-follow links to boost your ranking in SERPS, but also you site should have less number of do-follow links to other site. Because if your site has more do-follow links to other sites, link juice will flow from your site to other sites and your ranking would be effected.
So, in order to have good ranking in google and other search engines, you must no-follow low quality links on your site and keep only those links do-follow that are to highly relevant and high authority sites.
