HI All,

I am building a pretty successful link campaign but feel like an idiot as I don't know what a back link is.
Are they outbound links?
Thanks!

A link from a site to you, hence it is "behind" you, hence "back". It is not necessarily a reciprocal link. I think you only see the ones with PR4 and higher - at least mine are PR4.

Thats right, only backlinks with a PR4 or greater show up.
