Content V/S Backlinks

As we all know that Backlinks is a important part of SEO, in other hand, Content is King in today's modern SEO. I am little confused now, What is considered as more significant, creating content or building backlinks?

Give equal importance to both because each one is required to increase the ranking and traffic.

Web content is the textual, visual or aural content that is come across as a part of the user experience on websites. This may include documents, data, applications, e-services, images, audio and video files, personal web pages, archived e-mail messages, and more.
Back links (incoming links) are the links on other websites that are directed towards your website. The number of back links is an explanation of the reputation or relevance of that website. It empower you to keep track of other pages on the web that link to your posts. The more back links a website has, the more prominent it is.

Both are equally important. Good content laden with legitimate links can do a world of good to your online business. Internal linking is also very crucial when it comes to keeping a visitor focused on your website.

Content and Backlinks both are very important for our website because Your website will be of no value to readers without content and Backlinking has been proved the most effective way of doing this

Hello Caroline
I suggest putting a bit more effort on content because Google is always changing the way it sees backlinks so the quality and effectiveness of backlinks will change but top quality content will not. Also when trying to get quality backlinks from other sites the site owner will likely look at your content to decide if they will give you the backlink. Backlinks are important but first you should build a VERY solid foundation on which to build on and that is your content.

Hi Caroline!

It helps to think of it this way:

The better your content is, the easier it'll be for you to build high-quality backlinks.

Think of your content as your websites personality, and your backlinks as character references. If your personality isn't very good, it'll be harder to get people linking to you to say "this website is awesome".

On the same note, backlinks from websites that are popular will be more helpful than backlinks from sites that aren't doing so well. And the best way to get popular websites linking to you is to have content worthy of their recommendation.

So focus on creating some really useful content first, then think about getting other websites to link to it. This'll make things much easier for you and more effective in the long run. :)

If you want to learn more about creating content that is useful and shareable (and how to build links to it), we've just added a fresh set of lessons to step 6 in AffiloBlueprint (Find more info here: https://www.affilorama.com/affiloblueprint) so that's an option for you to look into if you're interested. :)

Hope that helps, best of luck!

backlink created when you post quality content without content backlink never created from anywhere. if you post somewhere your quality content then your link register there and finally your backlink has been created.
