More links=less waiting?

MSN and Yahoo would brag about their investment in crawling capacity.
However, they might just 'travel' through the wrong cyber-neighbourhoods,
which might be composed of pseudo/synthetic content and plenty of useless,
duplicable information, which would not benefit the index. Bad index leads
to bad search results.
While links pose a barrier in the face of *reach* (i.e. requiring links means
that the entire Web will never be crawled fully, but instead will be cycled
through again and again), there is quality assurance in place. That, I
imagine, is why you must gain some links in order for Google to honour your
One site of mine barely has *any* links (it's 5 years old), but it continues
to be heavily crawled by MSN. Google and Yahoo are nowhere to be seen.
