Links pointing to your website from a seperate web destination. Also called inbound links. Google will normally only show backlinks that carry a PR or Page Rank of 4. AllTheWeb normally reports a greater number of backlinks in general. To find a website's backlinks use the following syntax in the search box of your favorite search engine: link:http://www.somesite.com
Also called "Inlinks". These are links back to your website from an outside source. As the theory goesâ€¦the more backlinks that you have from other important and trusted websites, the more important the search engines will think your site is (and they will rank it accordingly). On the other hand, if many bad, untrusted, or spammy websites link to you, the search engines will either give you no credit for those links, or they will issue you a spam penalty and lower your rankings. Hint: Don't buy links from link farmsâ€¦let people link to you naturally.
The number of quality links from other websites directed to your website. This is part of link popularity and SEO marketing, the process of collecting quality links from other websites pointing to your own.
Backlinks are defined as all of the links on other pages that, when clicked on, take the user to a specific web page. For that specific web page, call it Page A, each link linking to page A is called a backlink. Many search engines allow the user to view a pageâ€™s backlinks so that userâ€™s can understand what web sites deem it a relevant web page. Also called Inbound Links.
A measure of the number of web pages found on the Internet that contain a link to a specific page. Backlinks can be found both within a web site and on other external web sites. Search engines that use backlinks to measure the value of a web page (for the resulting listings) include: Google (includes AOL), AllTheWeb (Fast), Altavista, Hotbot and MSN. !-- var name = "sales"; var domain = "seo.com.au"; var text = "Click here to request a backlinks report"; document.write('a class=copy href=\"mailto:' + name + '@' + domain + '\"'); document.write(text + '/a'); // -- for your web site.
backlinks are the inbound links that point to a paticular web page. Backlinks are important for search engine optimization (SEO) because some search engines, especially Google, give more credit to websites that have a good number of quality backlinks. Sites with better backlink counts usually rank better in SERPs.

Links from other pages that refer back to your page. The quantity of backlinks can be taken into account as an off-page factor in ranking a website's natural search results for a particular search term. The quality of the backlink - that is, the referring page's own ranking - is also taken into account.
Links that are inbound from another website to yours, as opposed to outbound links (links that take visitors away from your website) and internal links (links within your site or that move a visitor around within your website).
