I have never looked it up. I need to but I thought I would ask to get the communities info.

Also Why are Backlinks important

a back link is when you link 2 websites or articles together---I have a main website where I promote my coaching business and link to all the articles I've written

a backlink from an authority site can increase your ranking. A backlink from a site that doesn't get much traffic can cause your ranking to be downgraded.
