    Yes and no. A backlink is great if it's from a reputable location, but "spammy" backlinks will backfire and get you lower rankings.  I place links to relevant sites on my hubs, blogs, websites and I try to get backlinks for my writing in quality locations. 

    Social media is also a great way to boost credibility to your writing.  I have several hubs that get tons of Pinterest traffic for example.

      Think of 'backlink' as 'linking back to your hub from somewhere else' like posting a link to it on facebook. And think of 'backfire' as good intentions gone wrong, like if posting that link on facebook got you a bunch of bad reviews.

    A backlink is when someone places a link to one of your pages at their website. If I added a link to one of your hubs on my Facebook page, that's a backlink. It will give you a lot of traffic if it's posted somewhere people are going to see it. If I posted it at my blog which gets very little traffic, it won't help you much. Now if you wrote a hub about, hypothetically, the great advantages of adopting a dog from a shelter and the Humane Society posted a link to the hub at their main website, you would probably get tons of traffic. Hope this helped.

      So it means if some one else posted link of one of my hub to their page or website then it is called backlink.
