What is a backlink (or inbound link)?

Hyperlinks (also known as hyperlinks, inbound links or backlinks) are links from one website to another website page using anchor text.

Google and most other major search engines take into account the number of backlinks associated with web pages. These indicate the relevance, quality and authority of each page. Pages with a large number of relevant backlinks tend to have good organic rankings in search engine results.

Inbound links are sort of _votes from other websites. Each of these votes tells the search engines, "This content is credible, useful and valuable."

The more votes a page has, the better it will rank in the results of Google and other search engines. Of course, a multitude of other factors also influence the results, which do not depend only on the number of backlinks.
