Decent sites with with interesting content will get lots of free, one way links, including library, .edu .gov and real nonprofit .org with no need to even ask.
I've seen plenty of counterexamples to this. decent and interesting content does not mean more free links over time. Maybe in some cases it does, but certainly not in all. A decent site with interesting content about poker affiliates isn't going to gather .edu or .gov links. You can get them, but you've got to go looking and asking.
