    If I listen to my best friend, who's more into SEO than I am, then links are still going strong even now and will probably do for a pretty long time.

    Backlinks are very important part of off-page optimization. In my opinion backlinks are still working and these are worthy of your website. I will suggest you to do some strategic plan for your backlinks.

    I think that ever since google to the Page Rank Meter out of the publics eyes, it has been looked at (Link Building/Backlinks) as obsolete because we are unable to know for a fact what exactly we are buying, selling, or swapping. Link building will always be needed as long as we have a Google, it's a very much needed action for any website. But that's just my opinion.

    Good links help your Google keyword ranking.

    But also, links bring you traffic. Case in point: Last month my website had 49,392 visitors. The majority were through organic search. But almost 12,000 of the visitors came directly from links.

    Backlinks were and still is the backbone of SEO. No matter what google says about natural link building, backlink still works like a charm! I remember a few months ago I started a website on a very easy keyword and with link building within a week it was ranking on 3rd position. I know you all will think that with Google changing its algorithm every now and then this will be impossible but this worked! I sold the website 2 weeks after making for $600. It was quick money. Also, many of my sites are still ranking because of them. And if you are depending upon natural link building than it might take a long period of time for the site to rank to make some minimum profits.

    Links are the core of the internet, And so the backlinks which refer to each other. So it will always be relevant for any website.

    Backlink building definitely still works but you need high quality backlinks from high domain authority websites. The low quality profile backlinks and backlinks created by bots will no longer work. Google still cares about backlinks but they are putting more emphasis on the quality of the backlinks. If you build large numbers of low quality backlinks, it will probably not rank your website since Google constantly changes their algorithm and the algorithm will be able to distinguish between high and low quality backlinks.
