From work recently done on getting a site to rank I got the distinct impression that:

1) inward links accounted for 33%
2) in site links .. for 33%
3) and on page factors also accounted for 33%

What do you think the balance is?

A few years ago while writing for my blog series on link building strategy, I found these contributing factors to get top search engine ranking:

30% because of old Backlinks
25% because of new Backlinks
15% because of regular updates
10% because it offers a useful service or resource
5% because of good title and meta tags description
5% because of keywords in content on page
3% because of minimizing, removing outbound links not working
3% because of HTML write-up validating
2% because of minimizing HTML bytes
1.5% because of other SEO
0.5% because of good keyword meta tag
