claaarky, yup Panda trumps everything as you say. But, Google still needs links to discover new content and grade them. Bigger the count of links (genuine links that is to say) would mean the the website is likely to have higher traffic, which makes Panda analysis that much more reliable. Links, whether we like it or not, will be a part of the mix.
