    Yes, Back links do play an important role in SEO. But now a days, the things are bit different. It helps to generate referral traffic and also helps in increasing the Domain Authority(DA) of the website. Try to get links from the websites which have high DA and PR.

    Google rarely deals with backlinks now. Just daily fresh content. The only important backlinks that work these days are .edu and .gov links if you can get your hands on one.

    Yes, it is still important. However Google and Bing both have been steadily changing their algorithms to favor quality over quantity. Links from authority sites have increased in value, links from easy-to-spam-or-create types of sites have diminished greatly.

    Content and backlinks are STILL important.. I don't think backlinks won't help any more.. Then SEO should disappear :D

    I'd personally agree that good back-links are probably the most important factor with ranking your web-sites in competitive markets but to have there you need to address all one other elements you talked about of SEO as well.

    Boy, oh boy, I was hoping for a good argumentative discussion regarding backlinks when I got here...Sadly I was mistaken. What this thread looks like:

    Someone said backlinks are dead.
    I disagree.
    Oh, btw, you can also buy backlinks from me [contacts]

    Luckily the self-advertising rules here have always been lenient...

    What is the common thing between Matt Cutts, Rand Fishkin, Guy Kawasaki and other evangelists? When they talk they will never give you straight up information. You have to read between the lines and take the important points from what they say. Of course backlinking is not dead. Is its role diminished though? It certainly looks like they are going that way. Right now its easier to rank a good content website, even with a few links attached to it. If you have better arguments than "links bring traffic" or "links are important for keywords" I would be glad to hear them. Otherwise this is just a platform for self-advertising and nothing more.

    Backlink is as important as your site internal linking, content, meta data etc. or anything that your site is built in.

    As per my experience back links are most important if you want to boost rankings of the keywords and traffic on the website. I agree Google prefer quality and unique content but also need quality back links. If any one want to increase traffic on the website.

    Backlinks are important, simply we can't say how much today in 2015. It's clear that things are changing, evolving, I can say.

    What will be the final result? the extinction of any webmaster activity? :) I think this will be the future in the next years. Will we still have irrelevant search results? this is the real question and the problem to face.
