What If A Client Doesn’t Like Link Building?Not work with them and move on, j/k sort of.  To be honest I have worked with a lot of websites in the past that link building was not an issue, just content, arhcitecture and other things.

I don’t consider any of those methods to be link schemes...they’re simply ways of getting the site out there in terms of visibility. In regards to your comment: "i don’t have ANY link pages on ANY of the websites i do SEO for (50+)."why is that relevant? No one is talking about having link pages.

While it is true you don’t absoutly need direct linkbuilding to do seo, it is a very useful tactic for increasing your search engine rankings. Ultimitly, if you use these other methods you mention that ultimitly increase your online visibility, you will ususally get more links as well. So even without direct linkbuilding, seo/smo in general will usually lead to inbound links.

Well, to really rank on Google you need an army of links, all sending page rank to your web pages. Sadly, without links you will not rank very high for competitive keywords.
