    Backlinks are still the #1 factor for ranking. But quality does matter.

    That's always been the case .. Google has been advising against making your own backlinks since Day 1, and they aren't going to stop

    Does that mean we shouldn't?

    That's on you .. But SEO can be a sloooow game if you are depending on 100% natural inbound links.

    Backlinks are the top most factor for gaining rank, so it will count,which should be in good quality.

    Just Ignore those kind of articles. Backlinks are the key factor in ranking factor.

    It depends on the quality of the Backlinks you are getting for your site.

    Definitely you will get benefit if you are getting back links from good authority site having great content relevant to your niche.

    Hi there,
    Do you actually mean "automated backlinks"?

    Yes.Google takes the hammer out and hit you hard if the links are not natural or they don't look natural in GOOGLE's radar eyes.

    If you want stay away from the spam scanner,you got two choices
    1)Built it from scratch -naturally.
    2)Make the google think you built it -naturally(Ofcourse)

    Automated backlinks techniques are outdated and is the best way to get caught red handed by Google as we manipulate the links for the results on the SERP.
    Build Backlinks with high DA. and you will be fine.

    I see sites ranking first position for medium keywords just with private backlinks. That is in my niche. Not even hitting the actual keyword dude. So that should tell you something.
