That seems counterintuitive to me. So if "my" company does ERP software 
and I have links to my competitors, like to PeopleSoft and SAP and 
whoever else, who are all much more successful than I am, that I can 
rank up there with them just by linking to them?

I am not claiming to know, just commenting that to my pea-brain that 
doesn't make much sense.
