What are backlinks

A backlink, also called "inbound link", "external link", or "incoming link" is a link between 2 different websites. This is unlike "internal links" that are links between pages of the same website.

Why are backlinks important

The number of backlinks, their relevance, and the authority of the referring domains are major criteria for ranking on Google and other search engines. All the backlinks of a website, their attributes (follow, nofollow, anchor text...), and the value of these links represent the website's backlink profile. A strong backlink profile provides better opportunities to rank at the top of SERPS.
