I am not saying there are no benefits of backlinks.
Backlinks can surely:
1) Improve your page rank
2) Can drive traffic to your website directly( non search engine traffic)
3) Can drive traffic indirectly to your website. For example if the site with your backlink is well indexed and have high SERP position,then you will get a share of that traffic from search engines too.
The purpose of this article is NOT to say "Hey guys! Stop working to get backlinks".
The purpose is to show the importance of "onsite optimization" to get the better google position.
I think it is clear now.
