My site is about financial services such as business valuations and budgeting. Most of my back links are from smashingdish dot com and improveyourjobskills dot com and do not have much to do with finance...Will these backlinks improve my website ranking in search engines?

      Backlinks are backlinks. Of course they help.
      Help is a relative term.

      The most effective backlinks are contextual, high
      up on a page, and from what google deems
      relevant.

      But relevance is relative. That's why people want
      sig links here.

      What matters most is the PR and authority of the page
      the link is on, not necessarily whether your site
      has anything to do with the linking site. Get all
      3 lined up, and you have a total winner.

      Start creating your own web empire--blogspot,
      squidoo, etc., create "relevant" content, backlink like
      an animal.

      Sure. The Google Adwords keyword tool results are as accurate as any Google keyword tool.

      Be consistent with your backlinking. Every link helps - though there are some that help more, as mentioned above.

        The key to that phrase is bolded. Sometimes they are wildly off

    They may or they may not...

    Sometimes backlinks are less related to the website but they might are important for the website which is linking to you.

    If you don't want to take any risk by providing them link building credit, make them nofollow.

    As relevant backlinks to the site be more helpful in the ranking. And not just depend on the backlinks but also provide the quality content and get the maximum engagement of the visitors to get the effective results.

    Yes, it will help. Remember that link is a link. If you have a chance to get link juice, do it as long as the link that you will get is not from a "bad neighborhood".
