The thought behind incorporating backlinks as part of the page rank algorithm is that if a page is high-quality, users will start linking to it. And the more backlinks a page contains, the better. But you cannot always depend on the fact that your subject matter is good and people will link to you. Yes, if your content is decent and applicable you can get a lot of first-rate backlinks, including from sites with related content as yours but what you get without hard work could be less than what you need to productively market your site.
