Aristotle, this comment of yours made me laugh:
"Then other people will link to it without any effort on your part."
Do you work for Google or something?
If my product is run of the mill garden spades, can you please tell me how on earth that will attract natural links without ANY effort?
No matter how good and compelling my content is, no one is going to get that excited about my spade to go to the trouble of actually linking to it.
It just doesn't happen.
