What is a backlinks mean?
A link to your website associated with a mention of your business’s website somewhere on the internet. Backlinks are also called “inbound links” or “incoming links.” Backlinks are important to SEO.
Why are backlinks important?
Backlinks are especially valuable for SEO because they represent a “vote of confidence” from one site to another. If many sites link to the same webpage or website, search engines can infer that content is worth linking to, and therefore also worth surfacing on a SERP. So, earning these backlinks can have a positive effect on a site’s ranking position or search visibility.
Earning backlinks is an essential component of off-site SEO. The process of obtaining these links is known as link earning or link building.« Back to Glossary Index
