What Are Back Links - The Building Blocks

What are back links - The backlink question.


If you've ever wanted to make a website, rank a website or explore how to make money online, you've wondered.. What are back links ? It's a very basic question with a fairly basic answer.

Backlinks are links that point to other pages that may or may not point back to yours. Backlinks connect information, images, pages, and videos. This inner-connectivity is also referred to as hyper linking.

Backlinks have been around since the start of the internet. They truly are the building blocks. As many changes as the internet has undergone, "backlinking" has been through it all. However "methods" to build them have come and gone. Some methods have been very successful and others have not. However, the caveat is that success in past link building efforts have enjoyed short shelf lives as the search engines have adapted to those strategies and tactics. Those adjustments have made prior successful link building strategies less successful as they once were. Tools have been created to build backlinks to make the process less intense as opposed to manual link building which many have found to be "very" laborious, slow and tedious.

There are also inbound links and outbound links. Inbound links are links coming into your website and also commonly referred to as backlinks. Outbound links are links leading from your website outside to another also commonly referred to as outgoing links.

Building backlinks are still a "huge" factor in how websites get ranked. As algorithms have changed within the search engines, links are no longer the singular way to rank websites but still remain a critical piece of the puzzle.
