Does niche matter?

Will it be negative for my site's ranking in Google's eyes if it receives a high authority backlink from a different niche site if mine is in travel niche?

A niche is typically thought of as a specific area in which a blogger specializes.

In this scenario, Keyword's anchor text & relativity matter.

No it's fine. Google considers a backlink from an irrelevant niche, what's important is its authority.

No matter the industry, size of the website, or the niche, you need a strong SEO foundation to get search engine traffic.

Having a niche is important because if you try to cater to everyone your overall marketing and message won't speak to anyone. Your niche can also be linked to who your ideal client is. So, it's important you have a targeted niche market and speak to a customer or client in a certain way which they can really relate to.

Yes, this is an essential part of any successful content site. You will want to make sure there are people actively finding keywords in your niche. However, this is also a sign that there might be higher competition. This could make it difficult to rank in Google, which is something to have in mind.

And that's the key… you don't necessarily NEED a niche, but you absolutely DO need a business focus and a differentiator… ... A niche can give us those 2 things, but if you don't have a niche, then you do need to go find your differentiator and go get that business focus

Even, it’s crucial to keep backlink significance in perspective. The ultimate aim of an effective link building program is not just to create buzz for your products; it’s to build search authority and relevance for your web.
