Links are the natural and/or unatural process of getting ranked on the web. I can go look up any site that is in the top 10 and see that all of them are buying links, I cant prove it, but sites typically dont jsut radomly put a link for keyword on there footer, or sidebar. This is all I am saying. Yes being in bad neighborhoods will get your rankings dropped eventually. Our sites write unique content all the time, but the only way a site will get to the first page of google without buying links is if that content is based on a 80 year old lady getting kidnapped by a purple alien.
