A while back a friend struck Google gold with one of his sites, it went from a few hundred visits to over 10,000 Google visits per day in a pretty short space of time. He was pumping in links and content from all over the place and almost overnight it started to pop for every term you could think of in it's niche. Site number 2 got similar treatment but never did as well and has been left to a slow death. The main site is still booming some 18 months later, link development has been scaled right back and all appears solid in the results (fresh content is added daily). Because so much link work was done it's been hard to determine what exactly caused the Google flood gates to open but I suspect he's jagged a couple of very strong links along the way that carry the whole site. Repeating the exercise on several other domins resulted in banned sites and tears, toys were thrown and dogs were kicked...

For competitive keywords you need both! (quality and quantity)
Spy on the top sites for your keywords and see what kinds of backlinks they have.
