    Backlinks, also known as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links, are incoming links to a website or web page. Backlinks were originally important as a primary means of web navigation; today, their significance lies in search engine optimization . The number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page.

    How to we create quality backlinks?
    To be on the safe side, most SEOs would advise you to stop doing anything to get links. If you’re doing business online, I think that’s the worst advice you could ever get. Instead you need to learn how to build links the right way.

    I discussed about backlinks and it's importance above, not it's perfect time to tell you about some backlink building strategy used by todays experts.

    So lets get started…
    • Getting Listed in Directories
    • Ask for Blogger Reviews
    • Give Testimonials
    • Link Reclamation
    • Submit Your Site to Website Feedback Sites
    • Submit Your Site to Aggregators
    • Broken Link Building
    • Infographics
    • Social Sharing

    • Getting Listed in Directories - pointless
    • Ask for Blogger Reviews - overused and no longer effective
    • Give Testimonials - adds little value
    • Link Reclamation - almost pointless
    • Submit Your Site to Website Feedback Sites - pointless
    • Submit Your Site to Aggregators - never ever do this
    • Broken Link Building - almost pointless
    • Infographics - overused and no longer effective
    • Social Sharing - pointless
    If you want to rank well focus on your website. Get it right and you don't need to do much link building.

    LOL, but I have to agree with you.
    It's strange how many people count on building as many links as possible and forget other things.

    UX, good quality content on the web, the technical part of the web, mobile version, local SEO and only high-value backlinks to the site - I think it is a right combination of steps for good SEO results.

    You won't get much long term results from these steps.
    forums - most of them use nofollow for backlinks and a big number of backlinks from forums is suspicious for Google.
    social media posting - it's ok but you do some steps and there is not so much to do more.
    blog commenting - if it still works for you, I think it is a question of time when it won't work.
    ppt submissions - it might work for now.

    To sum up - I think it is time to stop trying to cheat on Google by using easy, cheap and quick methods. As we can see Google improves its algorithm and it can detect these not-natural backlinks better and better. I think it's time to do as Google wants. :)

    The people who are beginners in SEO they are right because most of the blogs and article suggest mentioned off-page process to create backlinks.
    But on the basis of your experience which you are suggesting this is good.

    These blogs and articles are wrong.

    SEO is mostly about getting the onsite content and structures right. If you can do this then backlinks are often not necessary.

    The backlinks that do work are difficult to find or cost a lot.

    Remember the golden rule: the easier a link is to obtain the lower the value of that link.

    Focus on the website. Do your research and be prepared to put in a lot of effort if you want the rewards of good ranking.

    The only links that work in this vein are useful links in blog posts and newsletters to targeted site visitors. In addition, reviews can still have an effect on the site name or brand of the company.

    A backlink is a link one website gets from another website. Backlinks make a huge impact on a website's prominence in search engine results. This is why they are considered very useful for improving a website's SEO ranking.

    Backlinks are links on one website that, when clicked, take the user to another site and Backlinks are especially valuable for SEO.

    Backlinks are useful if your website itself is good. But it is useless if your website is not well-structured and well-optimized.

    They can do but they can also result in huge penalties.
