Backlinks in 2020 remain a crucial component for organic search ranking, and the number of referring domains is one of Google's most important ranking factors. That means that the more total referring domains a site has, the higher the site ranks on Google.
A backlink is any link created on one website that leads to another in laymen's terms, says a Forbes article entitled 'Using Backlinks to stay relevant as you adapt to global change.'
"Also known as 'inbound links' in a lot of cases, they form an essential part of the SEO process when used strategically," it adds. "Businesses arrange for links to their websites from high-authority sites. The resulting link equity created by those links helps to drive up their rankings and overall SEO.
Backlinks from big-name websites to yours essentially signal to the major search engines that those websites can vouch for you.

The US freelancer strongly believes that any worth doing is worth doing well, and she says her mistakes are learning opportunities. "I learn from my clients. They've helped me get better at what I do."
Freelancing turned my life around
"I've been freelancing for over four years now, but I branched out into it this year after the global COVID-19," said Ella. "Freelancing has been key in turning my life around. It has provided me with the financial freedom I so desperately wanted."
Ms. Tyler finds she now earns enough from freelancing "to save for future goals, such as education and acquiring more skills to deliver the best freelance services possible. I also make enough to pay my bills, putting food over my table and set money aside for other projects, one of which is forex trading."
One of the best decisions
"Freelancing on AnyTask is one of the best decisions I have ever taken," Ella said. "I tried offering freelance services on platforms such as Fiverr, but it was very complicated because of how stiff the competition is. But all that changed with AnyTask."
She explains that the earning potential is also tremendous on AnyTask. "Firstly, you get paid immediately after your client approves the task. Freelancers do not pay any fees on AnyTask, and you get paid with Electroneum (ETN), which is one of the most widely-accepted cryptocurrencies."
