Trustworthiness – Google puts a lot more weight on trusted, popular websites. Websites that Google recognizes as reputable and trustworthy. Websites from globally recognized sources such as BBC, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, and in some cases even Wikipedia are often considered trustworthy by search engines. Having backlinks from such valuable sources will add great value to your ranking and organic traffic.
Relevance – Industry relevance and correlation is also important. Its more valuable to have backlinks from websites relevant to your business, and your industry than you have links from random sources.
