    Question about Back linking

    When people backlink do they do it in hopes of getting people to click that specific one or does back linking rank you higher in the search engines regardless?

    What I am basically saying is that even if not many people click that specific link is it still good to back link for SEO for google to rank higher?

    If the link is do-follow, yes, it'll help in ranking you higher. If you were to put in a link in your signature on a popular thread in a forum, for example, you may get some of the traffic from that thread -- but if you don't, you still have yourself a do-follow backlink (most forum sig links are do-follow) with the anchortext of your choice, so it's a win-win. Whenever you can, regardless of whether or not you're going to get traffic from that link, you should get backlinks. Without being spammy, of course.
