    Can anyone tell me what's backlinks means and does?

    It is having someone links in my signature on another forum? Something like that?

    Thanks.

    The most basic definition of backlinks is links from one website to another. Here on the forum, you will see links to websites in members' signatures. I am not sure what you mean by your second question, but someone on another forum can link to your website, and you can link to your website in your signature on this forum or any other, as long as the forum allows it.
    For SEO purposes, the best links to have are editorial links on blogs, press releases, articles, etc. An "editorial link" is a link in the body of the article, blog post, or press release.

    Agree to both Joeroxx and Matt. backlinks are essential part in the SEO Management. Backlinks are the traffics redirected to our site thru blog posting, social book marking, article submission and traffic generator backlinh juice services.

    as far as I understand, back link means website that link back to your site. it tells what your site is about.

    what it does?
    it lets search engine know what is your site all about. and should search engine give you traffic to your site or not. :)

    This means that when someone goes into a search engine to look for something that your business offers, you will come up on the first page of the search engine results (rather than your competitor). So, search engine optimization is important and you need to keep it in mind as you are creating your website.

    Not necessarily. Each link to a site is considered a "vote" or "endorsement" of the site. These can naturally come from anyone who may have a reason to use the product or service. Consider your own business - do the only customers you get come from auto parts stores, or auto repair shops, or any other business related to motor vehicles? Of course not - anyone can buy a car from you, and can then endorse your business for anyone looking for a vehicle. In the same way, links can therefore come from a wide variety of sites.

    Backlinks are incoming links to a website or web page. Inbound links

    Backlinks, which are sometimes called inbound links, are incoming links to a web page or the entire website. These inbound links are important to search engine rankings because many different search engines have algorithms that measure the number of backlinks a website or web page has, and ranks those web pages with more backlinks in a higher position.

    Backlinks are the foundation and root of any popular website. These are just links from other peoples websites that points back to your own site.

    Not necessarily. Although it won't hurt to have a business related to your t-shirt business link to you, your competitors are also trying to get their site ranked, so they are unlikely to help you with yours. Also, if you have only links from businesses related to yours, it will not look natural, and you will not get the results you want.
    In the same way, you do not want all your links to come from one type of site, for instance, all from directory listings. It would be better to have links from a variety of sources.
