Backlinks from decent to high authoritative sites kinda act like "votes." Each backlink is a vote that helps you rank higher on Google.

Backlink can help us get better ranking in Google and other Search Engine. And google is still a huge traffic source, right?

Your question should have been:
how "GOOD backlinks" are important for a website!

If you get wrong links then it can harm your ranking more than it can benefit you.

Back-links are very useful it helps you to increase domain authority of website and keyword ranking. Specially For google back-link is major positive factor of ranking. But always keep in your mind create back-links from high authority websites and niche sites.

Backlinks are still important to improve the ranking and traffic of the website. But it has to be from relevant sources and from niche sites.

Earlier SEO was all about quantity of links, but now Google gives more importance to the quality of links and not to quality of links.

Backlinks are still important in the website but not as a basis to perform well in the field.

Agreed. It's important but not the only means to boost search engine ranking. And should be done carefully with quality sites. Earning backlinks from low quality/spammy sites will do you no good.
