Back linking is all about the links that are directed to your website. These links are related to the content of your website that is why they are directed to you. There are also instances in which your website will be linked directly to another website because both of your content is relevant. For example your website is all about gold jewelry and the backlink that is in your website is also about gold jewelry – this is how back linking works. There are also times that the back links are less relevant such as silver jewelry is directed to your website. Although the concept of jewelry is still there, there is lesser relevancy now that it focuses more on silver rather than gold. The quality of backlinks is determined this way as well.
Enticing Visitors to Your Website
Another purpose for back linking is that it invites the visitors to visit your website, even if it just for a while. Once they view your content and like it, they will be encouraged to visit your website again. This way you do not have to wait for the search engines to have your website returned on search results but through back linking. More people will visit your website this way. 
Back linking has its own bad side as well but if you know how to avoid these things, you can still find backlink indexing very useful. Recently, search engines have been stricter on the quality of backlinking because of how unscrupulous webmasters take advantage of backlinks by achieving backlinks through sneaky or deceptive styles like hidden links. These hidden links generate pages automatically in which its purpose is providing backlinks to various websites. This technique can ban websites permanently.
