Content wins more than Links. You cannot control the links nor can you control the Search Engines Interest in the Links and their weight in higher search results.
If you are focused for achieving search success on SEO and primarily using SEO based link building, this can only be a short-term tactic at best.
Successs is based solely on how the search engines have decided to react to Links, you are at their mercy. Panda, Penguin, Porcupine, etc…the next algorithm change by the search engines may have a negative effect on your efforts to stay on links for a Primary Tactic. Think of in terms of visitor quality instead, content that is original, relevant and useful will provide a much better and longer term benefit than any crafty tactic that focuses on always chasing the Search Engine Algorithms. Search Engine Algorithm chasing tactic will put an unnecessary threat in daily website functions. Even if your website has not been effected by the previous Search Engine Algorithm changes.
