Links have always been a bit of a mystery - some say they're not necessary, some say they are the "secret sauce" that drives rankings.  Google "says" they're best when they're created naturally by being authoritative and helpful.

What's the truth? How can you build links, gain authority and rankings - but avoid Google penalties?
