    A “backlink” is one of the most used words in the world of search engine optimization (SEO).

    Many bloggers who have only recently started a blog or a website often struggle to understand what the term “backlink” means.

    In this post, I hope to offer you an understanding of what backlinks are, why they are essential to SEO, and why they are important for your online success.


    Backlinks are incoming links to a webpage.

    When a webpage links to any other page, it’s called a backlink. In the past, backlinks were the major metric for the ranking of a webpage. A page with a lot of backlinks tended to rank higher on all major search engines, including Google. This is still true to a large extent.

    Not true. "Copy and paste" is.

    Hi @John Hudson,
    This would have been more helpful if you explained further how it can impact someone's online success.
