Links don't matter? I know we had a brief debate about the merits of potential members joining your community via SEO but links in are another method of legitimising your community and promoting it. For instance a key PR blogger, say Brian Solis, says I've been on XXXX community this week. That will make me visit the site. If it's relevant I'll join because someone has recommended it to me.

Links in is basically another form of endorsement / recommendation. Though obviously it depends on who is linking.
