Are there any other reason to use linkshere instead of
linkshere can take multiple titles as input.

Do we get data from different wikibase table columns
using API linkshere
or using API backlinks?
Neither returns "wikibase table columns". They both return data from the
MediaWiki pagelinks table.
Why is the one "less complicated and hacky"
than the other?
backlinks does multiple queries to do some sort of redirect resolution, but
at the same time is limited to a single title parameter. Its queries could
probably use some improvement.
