    Quality backlinks always matter for Google. The techniques we used to build the backlinks for the website in 2 or 3 years back are not worthful for now. Because, Google prefers natural links more than spammy or unnatural links or from the spammy website.
    So, again here content is the king because if your write the quality content to your website and share quality and trending posts on your blog than definitely, you will earn the natural links.

    Backlinks are very important if you want to rank for medium or competitive keywords. But just submitting your website to directories, article submission sites, low quality forums will create negative impact rather than positive. So before creating a list of third party website that you will be using to submit your website. Do use OSE or majestic to check the link authority.

    Backlinks are very important to rank your website in Google and other Search engines. Without a Backlink, No website can rank better in search engines. You have to create backlinks from high authority websites and also focus on the relevancy of your links.

    backlinks are still important for Google Rank.
    try to get backlinks from high authority sites to improve rankings. more the quality backlinks chances are more to rank high.!
    but only backlinks are not required to rank on top. you have to do other SEO activities.

    Backlinks are especially valuable for SEO because they represent a "vote of confidence" from one site for another.

    In essence, backlinks to your website are a signal to search engines that others vouch for your content. If many sites link to the same webpage or website, search engines can infer that content is worth linking to, and therefore also worth surfacing on a SERP. So, earning these backlinks can have a positive effect on a site's ranking position or search visibility.

    I think backlinks will always be important, especially for the higher competition keywords but Google have made a whole bunch of changes over the past 18 month or so. I have a few pages ranking now for low comp keywords that have no backlinks built to them so I am looking to expand into that kind of area to try and move away from living in fear of the next Google update and losing everything.

    If you have a large website I mean 100,000+ pages it can only perform if you have a good number of links, I've observed that for these larger sites the amount of traffic seems to be correlated to the number of referring domains they have. It seems less important if you operate in niche with smaller sites.

    Yes the Elephant in the room is still your websites backlinks, there has been a lot of talk about user metrics which now seem to be a factor but more as a filter to push sites down with poor ones rather than reward.

    Yes, backlinks are still important for ranking in search engines (not Google only).
    There are many ways to get backlinks (build them yourself, hire someone or ask assistance in link building company).
    Of course there are some peculiarities for getting "good" links, you can learn them from forum users

In this, blog post is the good example of the category. So, This process improve overall performace of the SEO work. But remember qulaity backlink always contains high quality content, Other links e.t.c
