Buying relevant links is the best strategy to rank. Do you think the top sites wait for a nice visitor to link to their site in case (important) in case he/she has a blog, no, they are forced to act (buy) because everyone is buying or spamming. How about those without a blog, a site... well they are not important. Your opinion matters only if you have a blog where you can link to the prefered site otherwise your opinion as visitor is not important, it's not an important factor in ranking.
Rank manipulation is terrible, you have 2 options these days:
1) Be one in a million
2) Invest "a million" to be one of them (Top 10)
