Definition:
In search engine optimization (SEO), backlinks refer to hyper-links pointing to a particular Web page. Backlinks are important to SEO, because Google considers the quality and quantity of backlinks to determine PageRank.

To be clear, backlinks aren't the single determining factor for search rank, but they are a factor that's often abused for cheap boosts in Google search results. Google is constantly tweaking their search ranking formulas in order to weed out pages that earn their rank through cheap tricks. Overstock.com and JC Penny's ran into trouble for creating an artificial web of backlinks in order to inflate their ranking. (To be absolutely fair, it was likely the marketing firms they hired that did the rogue backlinking, not the companies themselves.)

If you'd like to get backlinks the legitimate way, create great content that people want to link. That's easier said than done in this age of social media, because most social media tools use links that are automatically tagged as "nofollow" for Google in order to prevent spammers from using the system as an automated backlinking system.

Backlinks is nothing but a referred genuine link of your website from any other site's page. It means your site is referred from a third party website for some reason.

Before I came to this site, I was ignorant of backlinks although I have been seeing that term already. But upon reading the discussions on this site, I got to learn that backlink is just the link of a website that when you click, you will be brought to that particular web page. In other words, backlink is the link of your website that you post on another site like Facebook or Twitter or even on a forum or a blog. When the reader clicks on your backlink, you get a visitor.

You forgot to mention the process of getting traffic to your site from the backlinks. When you had posted the backlink of your site on a good website then that is called quality backlink that can boost the ranking of your site in search engines. A good website is one that has a big amount of traffic which you can take advantage with the backlink that you had posted therein.
