Here's my suggestion. Why not skip links as a measurement totally since it is just causing a lot of problems? Why not just use the content of the site and rank that somehow? Link measure is "old fashioned" and worked years ago but not anymore.
My problem with incoming links is that competitors don't want to link. Advertisers don't want to link since then they might send a client to another advertiser that visits the site. So, where do I get incoming links from? A blog that talks about my site? Maybe, but they are all full of blog-spam-links now so Google needs to remove the "importance" of links from blogs.
