    In a perfect world your great content would be discovered by people and then those people would share it on their websites. Then more and more people would see it and share it. In a perfect world backlinks come from sharing great content. But this is not a perfect world so you need to write great content and find ways to promote your website if you want traffic.

    Content was is & will always be the king, but just writing great content won't get you to the top, for that you will need keywords optimized contents that will be for both search engines & visitors. So if content is the king, backlinks/social activities are the ministers that will help you get to the top. You might be wondering who is the Queen, it's YOU (means your smart work/motivation) . :D

    Good content always rules but you need to make back-links to drive traffic towards those great contents. I think simple answer to your query is you need to do both in equal share. Write meaningful and informative content related to your niche and submit those content on websites where you can get traffic. Seeking some more ways to build links for those content URL will simply add value to your SEO campaign.

    a good link profile should have both. But, refreshing content on the site is cleaner to Google and can be very effective.

    Both are important in its own way.
    1 - Unique and informative Content is no doubt more important to engage visitors
    2 - Quality backlinks will help your content to get some boost in serp.

    Here's a little bit of advice. If you're content isn't good you probably aren't going anywhere. Even if you build a ton of backlinks, without the content, you're not going to be able to succeed.

    I would advise you to firstly work on content. Once you get above 10 high-quality articles, that's when you can begin some minor backlink work. Maybe pre-write some articles and post them over the next few days while you begin backlink work. Honestly, nothing beats guest blogging, blog commenting, and forum comments for backlinks (don't forget to social bookmark either).

    Go for the high quality backlinks, not a bunch of PR0 or PR1s.

    Dear..it is nice that you write unique content for your website, but as you say "Will it be sufficient to just write gr8 Posts and leave rest to search engine". It is not sufficient because we have to submit unique and informative content in free high pr article directories so that you will able to get quality back links. I sure when you will apply above SEO Tactics, you will see improvement in your website credibility online.

    Gaining popularity through content ( no back link building ) can be possible,but it will take a hell lot of time.

    In case of blogs it can work,but if you are providing professional service or selling product, you need to promote it. Can't rely only on content.

    Hey Yes Content is more Important because Content is new SEO, but Backlinks are also important.

    CONTENT is King and BACKLINKS are Queen in SEO.

    At a one side it is very important to write unique content that people like. And on the other side building link is also important because if you will not add your site on different then how can people get to your site. So, write content but also do some link building for your site.
