Links from other websites

From Wikipedia:

Links are incoming links to a website or web page. In basic link terminology, a link is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website, or top level domain) from another web node.[1] Backlinks are also known as incoming links, inbound links, in links, and inward links.

Inbound links

Inbound links were originally important (prior to the emergence of search engines) as a primary means of web navigation; today their significance lies in search engine optimization (SEO). The number of back links is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page (for example, this is used by Google to determine the PageRank of a webpage).

Outside of SEO, the back links of a webpage may be of significant personal, cultural or semantic interest: they indicate who is paying attention to that page.

Search engine rankings

Search engines often use the number of back links that a website has as one of the most important factors for determining that website's search engine ranking, popularity and importance. Google's description of their PageRank system, for instance, notes that Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B.

Knowledge of this form of search engine rankings has fueled a portion of the SEO industry commonly termed link spam, where a company attempts to place as many inbound links as possible to their site regardless of the context of the originating site.

SEO - search engine optimization

Websites often employ various techniques (called search engine optimization, usually shortened to SEO) to increase the number of back links pointing to their website.

Some methods are free for use by everyone whereas some methods like link baiting requires quite a bit of planning and marketing to work.

Natural link baiting

Some websites stumble upon "link baiting" naturally; the sites that are the first with a tidbit of 'breaking news' about a celebrity are good examples of that. When "link bait" happens, many websites will link to the 'baiting' website because there is information there that is of extreme interest to a large number of people.

A favorable 'editorial vote'.

There are several factors that determine the value of a back link. Backlinks from authoritative sites on a given topic are highly valuable. If both sites have content geared toward the keyword topic, the back link is considered relevant and believed to have strong influence on the search engine rankings of the webpage granted the back link.

A back link represents a favorable 'editorial vote' for the receiving webpage from another granting webpage.

Anchor text

Another important factor is the anchor text of the back link. Anchor text is the descriptive labeling of the hyperlink as it appears on a webpage. Search engine bots (i.e., spiders, crawlers, etc.) examine the anchor text to evaluate how relevant it is to the content on a webpage. Anchor text and webpage content congruence are highly weighted in search engine results page (SERP) rankings of a webpage with respect to any given keyword query by a search engine user.

Increasingly, inbound links are being weighed against link popularity and originating context. This transition is reducing the notion of one link, one vote in SEO, a trend proponents[who?] hope will help curb link spam as a whole.

Don't get penalized!

It should also be noted that building too many back links over a short period of time can get a website's ranking penalized, and in extreme cases, the website is de-indexed altogether. Anything above a couple of hundred a day is considered "dangerous".
