    In layman's terms, there are two types of links: inbound and outbound. Outbound links start from your site and lead to an external site, while inbound links or backlinks, come from an external site to yours. e.g. if cnn.com links to yourdomain.com, the link from cnn.com is a backlink (inbound) for yourdomain.com, however the link is an outbound link from cnn.com's perspective. Backlinks are among the main building blocks to good Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

    Backlinks, also known as incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links, are incoming links to a website or web page. In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node.

    'Backlinks', aka 'incoming links', are when other websites promote your website
    .
    Also known as 'referrers', backlinks are when other web pages direct readers to visit you through hyperlinks.

    Backlinks improve website ranking in Google. But that depends on the quality of the backlinks. It's quality > quantity.

    A link from an external page with different domain or server that refers to your website are know as backlinks and also known as incoming links. Back links are important to get PR for your website. This will help rankings in the SERPs.

    Backlinks, which are sometimes called inbound links, are incoming links to a web page or the entire website. These inbound links are important to search engine rankings because many different search engines have algorithms that measure the number of backlinks a website or web page has, and ranks those web pages with more backlinks in a higher position. The more backlinks a website has, the more popular it is, and the more pertinent the information is considered by search engine algorithms. Many pages concerned with search engine optimization have mechanisms to discover how many backlinks the web page or website has, so that particular company can not only know the exact number of times that it has been backlinked, but where these backlinks are coming from, and if they are from related sources or not.

    Yes it does, back links from Link Farms and under bad neighborhood do marked as Bad Links.

    Bad neighborhood links do notified through the sites which got penalized by Google or other, the sites with unwant spam activities performed.
