Being a business consultant, I recognise the importance of SEO for websites to grow organically. In digital marketing strategy, 10% of the visitors might be converted into leads for the business (formula might vary according to industry). As the result, business would spend time and money pushing up their website ranking.
Why is backlink important?
Backlinks are hyperlink from another website pointing to your website. In layman terms, I would call it the popularity index. The more people talking about a particular person, the more popular he or she is. For this reason, everybody wants to rank as high as possible on Google.
This explains why backlink is important for your website on a search engine ranking. The higher the ranking the more visible your website and thus bringing more traffic. However, I would categorise the popularity into two simple indicators.
- Reference – in simple terms, the more backlink you obtain the higher your reference. In layman terms, its the popularity of the website.
- Renowned – if your website is backlink by an influential website, it is equivalent as being mention by an important public figure. Therefore being mention by a few influential websites would move your ranking very easily.
