A backlink is a backbone of ranking your articles in Google Search Results (SERP) Saying this would not be incorrect. Backlinks are one of those metrics which are very important for getting the desired rankings of your article. Many of you who are a newbie in Blogging must have heard bloggers talking a lot about backlinks, making good backlinks, high-quality backlinks on your blog etc. But I know, many of your remain confused as "What is a backlink and how to build backlinks". Don't worry!!

Backlinks are basically a link back to your blog or website. For ex. you wrote an article on the Features and Specs of Apple iPhone 7, but you did not have content for iPhone 7 reviews, so you added a reference link of some site which has written very well on iPhone 7 reviews. You added their link in your article, and when they give you link back in return for it, it will be called as a backlink. Even the top website Backlinko.com of Brian Dean focuses on the importance of the backlinks. Google prefers to rank those articles which have more no. of links from others because it looks more trustworthy. You must understand the importance of backlinks in ranking your blog post on the First page of Google search results.

Backlink is a link that makes a way to go from another website to your website. When the link of one web page is linked with the link of another web page, it is called backlink. With the help of simple language, I will tell you better about backlink.

For example, suppose there is a good website where many visitors come to read the article in its page, if the link of your site would have been given in that web page, then the visitors coming to that page will click on the link of your site on your web page.

So that visitors to your site will start increasing every day and your website will start coming on a good rank in the search engine. This is what we call backlink.
