Organic Links

There are two opposing views on the correct definition of Organic Links. According to some leading SEO figures, organic links are completely unsolicited backlinks that a website receives from other sites. Others say that organic links can include those that were solicited as long as no compensation was given to receive the links and the links must be natural for both the linking website and the one receiving the link (there must be proper context and relevancy to justify the links).
