What are backlinks?

 

Backlinks are when a third-party website puts a link back to your website on their website copy. 

The quality of a backlink is determined by the domain authority of the website linking back to your website. 

 

The goal is to have many high DA websites referring to your website as an authority in your industry.

The number of backlinks a third-party website has on their site also determine the effect the backlink has on your domain authority.

 

The more backlinks a third-party website gives out the less of an impact they have on your domain authority if you get a backlink from their website.  

An example would be getting a backlink from a government website that has a domain authority of 80 and only has given one backlink. This backlink would have a very big impact on your website’s domain authority.
