There is no doubt that backlink creation is one of the most contentious and divisive topics in SEO (SEO). This is easily understandable since your authority is based in part on the quantity and quality of links referring to you. It is nearly impossible to rank higher in search results pages (SERPs) without a lot of backlinks pointing to your site.
Furthermore, Google expressly prohibits sites from intentionally building links in order to manipulate their authority or ranking. Link schemes and spamming links will result in a penalty, which can range from a minor inconvenience to a total disaster for your site.
