What is a Backlink?

If you are in at all involved in internet marketing for your small business, you most likely know all about backlinks and how important they are for your business exposure on the web.

If you are just starting to think about getting your local business easily found on the web and think that your potential clients could benefit from your products or services, you need to know a few things about backlinks.

When you search on the internet, and want to visit some websites, you click on a link. If that link points to your own website, it is a backlink. It’s that simple. Well, almost.

If the link to your website is on your own website, that link is an internal link and not a backlink. In other words, for a link to be a backlink, it should be a link from some other website pointing back to your website.
