Are links from other sites important?
Links from other sites to your website are also known as “backlinks.” These are as important—if not more so—than links from your site to other (thematically similar) sites. Search engines consider these backlinks as a measure of the value, popularity or importance of the content to be found on the site to which they are linked.
