Google Webmaster Tools on link popularity =
Your site’s ranking in Google search results is partly based on analysis of those sites that link to you. The quantity, quality, and relevance of links count towards your rating. The sites that link to you can provide context about the subject matter of your site, and can indicate its quality and popularity. The best way to get other sites to create relevant links to yours is to create unique, relevant content that can quickly gain popularity in the Internet community. The more useful content you have, the greater the chances someone else will find that content valuable to their readers and link to it. Before making any single decision, you should ask yourself the question: Is this going to be beneficial for my page’s visitors? It is not only the number of links you have pointing to your site that matters, but also the quality and relevance of those links. Creating good content pays off: Links are usually editorial votes given by choice, and the buzzing blogger community can be an excellent place to generate interest.

If they tell you they ranked their last client in a competitive category with great content, no link building, and a herd of unicorns, hit eject! That said, and if you will recall the beginning of this article, you likely do not need a serious linkbuilder for an Enterprise SEO campaign. You are already the big dog. For you, the most important link decisions will likely be how to distribute your already impressive site authority deep throughout your site’s architecture so the entire of corpus of content is competitive.
