    backlinks are what gives your site a reputation...it amounts essentially to the 'popularity' of your site. It's quality over quantity - meaning the more relevant the better. If you post have links all over dog training forums pointing to your weight loss site - it's not going to add any value...

    Backlinks actually a webmasters' term for incoming links to a website or web page.

    This are links that point from any website to your website. Using the link: function in search engines like Google, it is possible to check the backlinks that point to any website.

    Quick question while we're on the topic:

    do you guys submit just your homepage to directories/other websites or a little bit of every page of your website?

    buckmajor,

    The Internet will shrink in size and SEs will close down if there are few outgoing and incoming backlinks.

    Telecommunication cos will make more money since we need to use the phones to talk to or
    sms our friends to tell them the urls.

    backlinks is one of the basis in ranking a site. Backlinks should be related to the site and you should use the targeted keywords as anchor text.

    Backlinks are very important for bloggers and webmasters' sites. The more backlinks you have, the higher your site's pagerank is. But take note that quality posts have to come along with it too. If you want to engage also in paid blog posting (for some this gives them more money), you have to have as many backlinks as you can as link popularity is one thing they take into account too.

    All the links pointing at a particular web page is known as back links or Inbound links. Inbound link share is an important part of web site marketing as they can deliver targeted visitors.

    Backlinks (or back-links (UK)) are incoming links to a website or web page. In the search engine optimization (SEO) world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page (though other measures, such as PageRank, are likely to be more important). Outside of SEO, the backlinks of a webpage may be of significant personal, cultural or semantic interest: they indicate who is paying attention to that page.

    In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website, or top level domain) from another web node (Björneborn and Ingwersen, 2004). Backlinks are also known as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links.

    A back link is an inward link to your site that may or may not be reciprocated with an outward link back. If page A links to page B then a back link would be a link which goes from page B back to page A.
