I'm new to all this and have a question regarding backlinks.
We're all aware that backlinks are essential for ranking in Google. Likewise we're also aware that the quality of the link(s) are more critical compared to the quantity.
My question is, are backlinks from social media and similar venues important?
For instance, if I'm promoting my website on Quora, FB, Medium, Reddit, etc, would these links count to ranking my website?
Thanks in advance and have a lovely day!
