Many unexperienced digital marketers will say that backlinks are dead and no longer contributes to a page's ranking. However, that is a false statement. You see, backlinks actually had a bad reputation in the early days due to spammers frauding the system and creating thousands of backlinks overnight in order to boost their website's rank. That caused many people to blame the system. In return, search engines began fine tuning their algorithm in order to prevent spammers from abusing backlinks. As a result, quality became a big thing of search engines. The better the authority of your backlink, the more it will affect your page rank and if you dare spam the system then you can bet that your webpage won't be seen on search engines.
