Do-Follow :

All links added to a blog post is a do-follow link by default and they pass link juice.

No-Follow :

When a link has the no-follow  tag, it passes no link juice, meaning it adds no value to the ranking of your blog. No-Follow tags are used when you are linking to unreliable website.

Root Domain linking :

This refers the number of links coming into your site from a particular site, no matter the number of times, it would always be counted as ONE BACKLINK.
