    I am always hearing the word "backlinks" but still, I can't fully understand what that means. Can somebody explain to me what does it means and how do it works?

    Backlinks just means finding websites that are willing to link back to your site. The more backlinks that you have, the higher the search engines rank you in their listings. Always try to get backlinks from sites with high Pagerank as Google will base your ranking on other sites Pagerank. If you can't find good sites to link back, then try building as many one-way backlinks as possible on low ranking sites.

    By putting those links in your Signature in Business Advice Forum, you're already on your way to increasing your backlinks GekiDan. If you post here regularly then this will again increase your backlinks.

    GekiDan you've had good explanations already. By way of example, a post in your own blog links to http://www.tvnihon.com/, that's a back link for them and I've just given them another one, by linking to them in this post. This also demonstrate how useful back links can be not only in terms of search engine rankings but also in getting people talking about your site.

    Backlinks are links from other websites that point towards your websites. Backlinks are needed to get higher SERP's.

    So you mean that If I have posted the link of my blog on various high ranking, and even low ranking, sites will get my blog more visitors and backlinks?

    Yes, especially if the subject of the blogs are in someway related to your own blog.

    Also, if possible try and use anchor text in the backlink with your targeted keywords. Looks like you are already doing that based on your signature.

    Well... I kinda learned that from an employer of mine. :)
    Honestly, I didn't know that it was called a backlink.

    Flash makes a great point, if you want help selecting keywords have a look at Google's Keyword tool.
