    We call it LinkBuilding around here, and I have a question for you: how many of the top ranking sites in your niche (Travel India?) have no/few backlinks?

    You think you can do without linkbuilding? You are probably right; as long as (the right) people are willing to link to your site without any effort on your side (except creating that awesome website and content), you should be fine without any Linkbuilding/Creation...

    Of course it works.. There is no other way to get on top 10 in google. You must get links organically or built manually.. but you must get them.

    Link building is still important but it's not as useful as it was before. I'm not sure but I think Google reduced the importance of backlinks in their new algorithm. However, the combination of brand mentions + social signals + backlinks is still effective.

    Write Compelling Contents that gets links naturally, likes, shares & comments through Social Signals.
    Share the content through Press Release distribution, Guest Posting, Articles Directories, Social Sites.
    Ask Website Owners with Broken Links to fix it & link back to your site for relevant pages.
    Participate in Forums, Q&A’s sites, News sites commenting with relevant information from your Website & link back to your site. It’s not for gaining links as these may be nofollow links which won’t pass link juice to your site.
    But you are known among the others relevant to your niche topics & your website gets traffic, may be some of the readers own high-quality sites & link back to your site.

    The answer is quite simple and can be easily found by you.

    To find out if link building/SEO is still vital i suggest you create 10
    experimental sites on different niches and markets. If two of them
    can rank without BL then you have found your answer and if they
    can't, there goes you answer too.

    Yes it is important , but make sure you only get backlinks from quality as well as relevant website. Always remember Quality over quantity.

    Backlinks are important for SEO because some search engines, especially Google, will give more credit to websites that have a good number of quality backlinks, and consider those websites more relevant than others in their results pages for a search query.
