I am a caveman when It comes to modern technology . So what Is a backlink and which ones are good ?
A link from any other page to your page.
All are good, but some are better then others.
thanks misha, now I know......I am just starting to put things together here because i am still a newbie. I learned new things everyday!
So which are better?!

It depends on the relevance of the topic and content, e.g. If you wrote a hub about growing vegetables and then put a link in back to another of your hubs on growing tomatoes it would be a good backlink, however, if you wrote a hub on growing vegetables and then put a backlink to one of your hubs on erectile disfunction it wouldn't really work, (as I am sure you can imagine!)
Links to your hubs from other authoritative sites count much more than one from a low-quality link farm. If you can get a link from a reputable .org, .edu or .gov site, especially, that will definitely juice your rankings.
Backlinks? Ain't that them new hot dogs that done had the backs shaved off em'?
Yeah.....did'nt they use to call 'em "smokey links" or somethin'?
