In a passing conversation about SEO, you might talk about how many clicks a specific piece generates,” said Breanne Millette, CEO of Bisoulovely. “But the real number you should be concerned about is the number of backlinks.”
To cut to the chase, backlinking happens when another outlet links your SEO work within their work. Hopefully, this is a symbiotic relationship as that’s where companies and their SEO efforts thrive. But this does not take place without some heavy lifting on your end.
