Effective Outreach Strategies for Link Building

There have been several blog posts written regarding an algorithm that would have the ability to rank websites without links. Although this sounds like an interesting topic, in my opinion it would almost be nearly impossible. Another topic that has been discussed to replace links is co-citations and co-occurrences and they present valid points. However If you are an SEO or link builder I would not hang my hat on either tactic just yet.
