"But there are bigger problems still with people not linking. For one,
credit is often not going to be given when due. Traffic to an original
source is not going to happen. Readers are going to be deprived of
additional, helpful and contextual information.
From Google’s perspective, it doesn’t make a lot of sense for sites
not to link to one another appropriately, because as far as we know,
PageRank still carries weight in Google’s organic rankings. That said,
Google does appear to be doing everything it possibly can to not have to point users to other websites.
There have been numerous reports of Google increasingly showing more
of its own stuff and less organic results on more and more SERPs. Hell, I
even see Google displaying a Google+ link for an article I’ve written
rather than the article page itself on SERPs. You know, I wrote an
article, then shared it on Google+, and Google decides to show the
Google+ link rather than the real link. This happens fairly often,
actually." Google Has Made People Afraid To Link

Although I would never advocate black hat tactics, this is an interesting case study that shows some pretty interesting things about how Google still operates, despite what they say publicly.
In this article "How Black Hats Are Still Gaming Google for Competitive Keywords – Case Study", some black hats create thousands of links to a brand new domain in a very short period of time with no content or functioning interface and still rank very highly for super tough keywords like "car insurance" in the UK. Is it me, or does this go against everything Google publicly says about backlinks and ranking?
