    The secret that everyone keeps forgeting is great content! write good stuff that people will definitely share on their social media accounts. you'll get other websites linking back to you effortlessly. and when someone visits your site, they should stay on the site longer simply because you have content. that will definitely boost your business/rankings

    3 most important factors for high position in Google:
    1) Backlinks
    2) Content quality and quantity
    3) Optimization.
    My answer - NO, it's impossible.

    Yes it is possible to rank without having backlinks, but it will take more time to rank in google. or it is depends on your targeted keyword's competition.

    Sorry, but not possible.
    When people refer to quality content - the end game will be creating backlinks naturally as opposed to link building.
    backlinks are required to establish googleֿ's trust, the only issue is how are they created.

    Yes you are able to rank at first place however your site need online optimization and it has to be very helpful for users. Make link to other people, it might chance to position. I've observed several site rated.

    As Google, there is no importance of link building, it depends on how you define "build backlinks." If you define it as building great content people want to link to, then no. But if you define it as actively asking people to link to your web site, then yes. Most websites probably never have asked anyone to link to them and they do rank in Google. Of course, most websites my readers work on have done link building to try to help the website rank even higher.

    Link Building is not that much effective these days, you can post content in form of the blog and the article to get your position on google

    There are plenty of ways that you can increase your rank without adding any links, but you should make sure that you know what they are. You should make sure that the content that you are posting on your site is relevant and that it is informative and you aren’t just posting nonsense. You would also want to use some of the low volume and long tail keywords for your site to bring in more traffic. Another good way to bring in more traffic without building links is through getting positive reviews from your customers.

    Ups... not sure if it is smart to post "SEO is dead" in search engine optimization category on this forum :) Some of us are living from SEO. For some it may be dead, but that doesn't mean it is dead for everyone....

    To answer on upper question.... backlinks are still (unfortanately) totally "in". Althouhg I got impression their importance is decreasing over time. Personally I am working my work 60% on content and onsite seo and 40% on backlinking. Striving to go to 70/30 or even 80/20 in this year.

    If you have good content, backlinks will AUTOMATICALLY come. If you do not have good content, NOTHING will help you.

    Yes I agree with you mmerlinn and pakistanwebserver. My friend actually did a post about this topic, not too long ago talking about the problems of buying backlinks -> https://prymadigitalmarketing.com/why-you-cant-buy-backlinks-for-seo-you-have-3-options/

    I generally think you shouldn't buy backlinks, even though they are extremely important for your rankings. It's too expensive for the good ones, and the cheap ones doesn't work, also with good products and content also comes good links! :)
