Backlinks is the name of the incoming links you get to your website from other sites. In the search engine optimization world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page. Google for example uses the backlinks for a given website in order to decide on it’s popularity and when calculating a Page Rank (PR), thus in general more backlinks mean that your website will get a higher rating. Especially when talking about Google and their PR you should consider that there are different types of backlinks each of which has different weight. Having fewer backlinks from higher rated and popular websites my give you an advantage over a lots of backlinks from new and not popular websites. Sometimes backlinks are also called incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links, but they all refer to the same thing it is just that the term backlinks became the most popular probably thanks to Google.

As Google became the most popular and widely used search engine worldwide it is normal that ranking higher in the results returned when searching for something is preferred. But getting to be among the first 10 results for a given keyword or a set of keywords in Google’s results is not an easy task. The factors that determine where should your blog or website be positioned in the results are quite a lot and nobody probably except Google themselves knows them all. This is all done in order to prevent webmasters from cheating, and although that helps in some way a lot of people succeed in tricking the system and ranking higher than others. Cheating is not something that we recommend doing, because it may as well have a reverse effect and you might find yourself in Google’s site blacklist for that. One of the absolutely legal ways to improve the position of your website or blog is to increase it’s PR or Page Rank and this is done by building quality backlinks to your site. How this can be done is a matter of another discussion, but for now lets settle for a more detailed explanation of what is Google’s Page Rank and how it is being measured, along with a links to a website where you can check your current PR….

What is Google Page Rank?
Page Rank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important”. In other words, a Page Rank results from a “ballot” among all the other pages on the World Wide Web about how important a page is. A hyperlink to a page counts as a vote of support. The Page Rank of a page is defined recursively and depends on the number and PageRank metric of all pages that link to it (“incoming links”). A page that is linked to by many pages with high PageRank receives a high rank itself. If there are no links to a web page there is no support for that page. Google assigns a numeric weighting from 0-10 for each webpage on the Internet; this Page Rank denotes a site’s importance in the eyes of Google. The scale for Page Rank is logarithmic like the Richter Scale and roughly based upon quantity of inbound links as well as importance of the page providing the link.
