Google really is shooting to be money proof, buying links may not help at all. It's sad but you may get the biggest bang for your buck by pulling a stunt of some kind and airing it out to the world. It works.
example: I mentioned shooting and bang so off the top of my head if you owned a car site (example) you may look up someone popular on youtube like FPSRussia and work out a deal to send him a muscle car knowing he will use some outrageous weapon and tannerite to blow it up. He'll thank you in the video and millions of people will see it.
disclosure: I don't know FPSRussia or condone what he does, I'm suggesting the eyeballs he commands are what you want to get in front of for natural backlinks. You'd air the vid on your site too etc.
