Link is any type of clickable text like when you click it opens new window or redirects you to some other webpage!

Back-link is a link from other website to yours.

I am continuing with @SureNot, Link is any type of clickable text - the link is called back-link when Google or any other searches engines considers it is a back-link.

More info: Not all links considered as back-links, Google index all the links but not considers all as back-links(Only considers when it meets the back-link policy).
Back-link Policy in simple words: If 'A' node is pointing to 'B' node, then 'A' is a backlink to 'B'.

Backlink means link from one website to another website. A link is just links to other pages on that website.

You missed somewhere @sofyjohnson? Check the highlighted, Both are similar meanings Smile
If I link a text to third-party website - what do you call this buddy? Backlinks or Link ... why?

Links are the actual links itself while backlinks are links that others may follow going to your web pages.

Backlink: is the link of some domain, placed on some other domain then yours.

Link: Every URL is a link.
