Backlinks are probably one of the most important SEO factors. Unfortunately, they’re also pretty high on the list of SEO metrics that you don’t have very much control over. Simply put, a backlink is an external link that directs users’ attention away from one site and to another. You certainly want to include some backlinks in your content, but most importantly you want there to be backlinks acting as an incoming redirection. In other words, you want to have other sites and pages referencing yours with a link.
