What is Link Popularity?
Link Popularity refers to the number of links pointing TO your site FROM other sites on the Web.
Building links is one of the most important factors in getting top placements on the major search engines.
Well I think panther786 & Hafsoh have given correct definition of Link Popularity. There are few factors deciding this:

- No. of Visitors coming back
- No of hits.

Link popularity still carries some weight in website ranking, but achieving that popularity has been made more difficult by some recent algorithm changes.
Ultimately link popularity is just one criteria out of over 100 that contribute to where a website shows up in the search engines, and depending on the keywords you are trying to rank for, may not be necessary at all.
Make sure any links you get come from websites with content relevant to yours, and if possible, from websites with a strong page rank.
