ColourOfSpring -- Well I just re-read my post, and i don't see anything about "build it and they will come." I was merely trying to explain the difference between natural and un-natural backlinks. So please don't put words in my mouth.
You didn't literally say "build it and they will come" but you did say a phrase that contains (to me) the same meaning as "build it and they will come" :-
If you create a good website, then it will attract backlinks on its own
That is your quote I made comments about. I think your quote is true in some very obscure niches online where you can truly stand-out and Google will reward you. In the vast majority of other markets, you have to be involved in black or white-hat manipulation (some call it marketing) if you concern yourself with improving rankings in Google.
