I think both.
Good content will engage your readers and reduce bounce off rate. It can encourage people to subscribe and hence will help you get a certain number of pageviews at least whenever you post on your website.
Good backlinks will help rank your website

Care to add some details so it doesn't look like you are just trying to increase your post count?

I would say content is more important.

Content is still the king

There will be no point in making backlinks if you do not have great content. There will never be a substitute for content because the world of the internet runs on content.

Content is the first thing which is considered by search engines. Backlinks might seem to be suspicious to search engines but fresh content wins the game.

Are you somehow privy to Google's search algorithm and know that the indexing order of content supersedes that of inbound links?

And, where did you read in the Google guidelines that links are bad??

Content and Backlinks baths are the best way of getting backlinks from High PR websites.

When I read some noob spouting that term, it bothers me. I'm tired of seeing people who know little to nothing about SEO throw that term out there because they read it somewhere and it sounds good or looks good in a post.

So, "if you build it, they will come"? No way in hell, unless it is promoted some how. Once momentum is gathered, that's a different story.

Good or bad content, some sort of promotion is necessary either social efforts or even some backlinks for traffic, not for SEO.

I repeat - FOR TRAFFIC - NOT SEO.

Regarding the part about good or bad content, well, I'll let you figure that one out.

I think, if you want to build a website then the first thing is to build good content. Then you will do backlinks, as it is also indispensable.

If you can build "great content", you don't need to build link. Because your great content will get more and more backlinks itself. Sound new? I am just writing the content and get 20 visitor per day

Why are you comparing backlinks to content. Both are different things. Content is on-page SEO technique while backlinks is off-page SEO technique. Both of them have their importance. Content or backlinks can't raise website all by itself. Both work together for good ranking of website. However, backlinks are more effective when having good keyword competition but alone backlinks are not enough.

Unfortunately backlinks are the predominant factor. Content does not help if the domain does not have popularity and authority. So backlinks are key to success even in 2017.

I don't know where you got the idea that content has no ranking value, because if that were so (which it clearly isn't if you've read anything on SEO today), that would put the SE bots out of business.

Both, because backlink is always useful
Content, you spend too many resources but your content is not known ->

I think: important is: Useful content, Right Time and Good banklink

I'd like to see your research data that corroborates your statement above

There's no guarantee you'll get links from good content. Quite possible if you work it, but if you believe it will happen, then you believe the saying "if you build it - they will come".

FYI - I replace your poor attempt at stuffing a self-promotional text URL link with [URL removed], which, BTW, I'm pretty sure a Moderator or two will happen by and edit your post.

I guess we can all agree on the fact, that content and backlinks are two sides of the same coin? To make money, you need the whole coin, and not just half of it.
