Does Back Linking Even Matter Anymore With Google's Algorithm Change?
In my view, this still has a value with Google. But the spam links and valueless content has big effect, it is not working as before.
Yes. You would still want backlinks.
They will be important for many reasons.
1. The search engine spiders need a way to find you.
2. The prospective visitor needs a way to find you.
3. Backlinks show that others think your page is important enough to share with others.
4. It could allow others to find your page, which means more potential traffic.
5. There are other search engines that would still value backlinks, even if Google does not, foolishly enough.
It is my opinion the 'back links' will be more important now than ever. You just have to make sure they are the right back links for Google to rate you better!
