    Questions about backlinks

    1. What are backlinks in non-technical terms.

    2.  Are they good or bad for a site?

     

    Semrush says I have 5.2K total backlinks (275 from referring domains and 361 from referring IPs).

    A backline is where there is a link to your website FROM another site  - hence the term BACKlink

     

    For the most part they are good and help increase your ranking, however if they are coming from a known spam / low quality site, then can have a negative impact on your ranking

    No Follow means that when the search engine visits the site the DO NOT follow the links - Posting your website link in places like the GoDaddy Community has no impact as the search engines won't follow the links from here.
