Google wants links to build naturally not by people making deals about links in the background.Google wants links to build naturally not by people making deals about links in the background.
My site gets mentioned all the time naturally in Reddit and Wikipedia but as far as I know about Googles algorithm these links will never count as they are all nofollow.
Reading at the comments, it seems that for most of you, links are made only for ranking purpose?To steal someone else’s line: I only regret that I have but one upvote to give.
Since no human ever arrives at any webpage by means other than a search engine, links obviously have no purpose except to rank better in the said search engine.

I actually detest how Google places any emphasis on links at all,
the effort obviously paid off.

This is subjective.
Google over weighted links, resulting in abuses and now, most webmasters are building links just for the purpose of improving their ranking.
Links should be used only to discover new content, and ranking should be based only on the content.
"It obviously paid off" is subjective? I'd say that Google's earnings and market share are proof positive that the PageRank concept (Google's version of "link popularity") worked.
Google isn't to blame for the fact that many people are stupid, greedy, or both.
Yes sorry, silly me, I was thinking of quality, but for you success is just a matter of money.
