---- Is a successful site possible with a small number of backlinks?

I konw that Larry Page would consider this to be blasphemy, but Google needs to move away from backlinks as a major factor in its algorithm.
I think they are trying. Just because a link exists doesn't mean they think it is an editorial link anymore and quite a few people believe that even a url without link or mention of a known brand name has equal weighting as a link in many respects.
