Links are still important. My suggestion is to learn how search engines work and you will better understand the role of links, including with spidering/robots. Don't chase the algorithm, and focus on creating great content that others want to link to due to the value provided. It's not complicated, unless you think about it tooo much.

Links is an important medium to reach our target audience so we must provide an interesting and beneficial content to make the link considered as quality as well as strong.

I agree with Logan.

Create a site others want to link to - that's the best policy. Links are still important, but they're not so important to put your site at risk by doing crazy things to get them.

Links are important because when Google was started, their method for indexing and ranking websites and pages in the search engine was mainly based on the number of links websites have. The basic idea was that the more links a web page had, that the websites will have good content.

It's not really "hard" if you make it part of your daily activities. Write great content, take other people's content and make it better, use tools to see who is linking to similar content, and develop online relationships. Over time links will come and so will an audience as well. It's definitely a long game, and yes many manual links are hard to generate (at least ones with any value).
