Hallo everyone. I had someone try to explain this concept to me, but i did not seem to understand it in a very clear way because they were using very many technical terms. So i have decided to give it another shot. Maybe some of you here are already familiar with this?  and maybe you would be kind enough to try and explain this to me in a more understandable way. I would be very grateful. Thank´you.

Hey here I am adding a quick info for that from a google search.

Backlinks are incoming links to a webpage. When a webpage links to any other page, it's called a backlink. In the past, backlinks were the major metric for the ranking of a webpage. A page with a lot of backlinks tended to rank higher on all major search engines, including Google.

Depends on your goal but be very careful when building backlinks. Search engines don't take to kindly to a lot of spammy links and it can hinder your rankings rather then help them. The best place to be is in some kind of middleground really. If the link adds value, add it. If not don't

basically any incoming hyperlink from one web page to another website is defined as backlink Or you can say whenever you backlink any website or blog inner page to another page it's called a backlink.

A backlink is a hyperlink that redirects the user to another page. For example, let's say the New York Times decided to publish an article on the best shopping carts, and Shopify appears as #1. They would typically make Shopify or any words in the description a hyperlink that links back to Shopify. This is essential for SEO because, to put it in very basic terms, the more links you have towards your site, the more credible it appears to the search engine.
