What is a Backlink?
A backlink is just a link to your website or your website posts from other websites on the internet. Backlinks are two types
- High-Quality Backlinks are the links from the top or reputed or big websites. They will improve your SEO and ranking.
- Low-Quality Backlinks are the links from bad sites like spam sites, gambling sites, porn sites, site contain malware, etc. Links from these websites will harm your site SEO and may result in banning from search engines.

What is the use of Backlink?
The backlink is always the best-ranking factor for Google. If you have a good number of backlinks, your posts will get top rank in search results. Backlinks are must for off page SEO.
Backlinks will also give you additional traffic. You don’t have to depend only on search traffic. If you build good backlinks through other websites, you will get equal or more traffic than search traffic. If something went wrong to your SEO, your posts will not be shown in Google search results. But you will get traffic through your backlinks. So it is a backup for your traffic.
Places to Build Backlinks
my sincere suggestion is to build backlinks on your own and use only below places. There are many sites which sell backlinks. If you buy backlinks from any one of the automated backlink building sites, you may get low-quality backlinks and you may end up getting banned from search engines.
Social media is the best place to get backlinks and good traffic. You need to create your profile and your website page in top social media platforms like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc., It is best to maintain few profiles what you check regularly. If you create profiles in every platform, that would be tough to maintain.
After publishing every post share that posts in your profile and page. If you are using WordPress, you can use Jetpack publicize feature to auto-publish posts to social media. I also advise you to participate in facebook groups and Google+ communities. You can also share your website posts in those groups. Make sure that the group or community is related to your website niche.
