Want to hear your thoughts, because my case studies have been all successful.. Never had a site get penalized, etc. All of them have ranked incredibly easy regardless of competition. So your running GA (in my case AdS), and one way or another G is tracking your site. Now lets think, how natural is it if they see your site is getting 30 visits a day, and all of the sudden 1,000+ backlinks are built.. That just wouldn't happen in real life. What I've been doing that has been working incredibly well is visits per day = backlinks. So if I'm getting 300 visits per day, I'll build around 25% of that, so 75 backlinks per day... I just feel if you hitting #'s outside of your traffic count, it's unrealistic and a red flag that might hinder your growth in the SERPs. Discuss..
